March 22 - 24, 2012 • The Weill Center, Armonk, NY

The tenth Europe-U.S. Symposium was held in Armonk, New York from March 22-24, 2012. Sessions included the future of the eurozone, macroprudential supervision, derivatives regulation in Europe and the U.S., and comparison of bank resolution in the Europe and the U.S. Despite the recent debt reduction agreement between Greece and its private sector creditors, concerns remained strong about the likelihood of future sovereign bail-outs. Financial institutions in the U.S. and most of Europe continued to improve, but eurozone sovereign debt and interbank markets had become highly dependent on official financing. Meanwhile, rulemaking on financial reforms in Europe and the U.S. had proceeded significantly over the previous year, although many rules remained undecided. The Symposium provided a forum to discuss the new economic and regulatory environment, as well as its likely effects on the financial sector.
