March 24 - 26, 2011 • Hampshire, England

The ninth Europe-U.S. Symposium was held in Hampshire, England from March 24-26, 2011. Sessions included regulation of derivatives and securitization, cross-border resolution of bank failures, regulation of non-bank financial institutions, and policies to address the sovereign debt crisis. While major European and U.S. financial institutions were seen as increasingly well-capitalized and stable, financial institutions and governments in a number of eurozone economies, particularly Greece and Portugal, were seen as more precarious. Derivatives and securitization markets had yet to recover, creating concerns for both issuers and investors. There was also pervasive uncertainty about a number of key components of the European, U.S., and global financial systems, including the designation and treatment of systemically-important financial institutions, management of cross-border resolutions of failed financial institutions, regulatory treatment of hybrid forms of capital, and mechanisms for the management of sovereign debt crises in the EU.
