For my own part, I’ve learned a little bit and had some good networking and could report all the speakers and comments, but only have time to share the most educational bit of the two days, which came from Kerstin af Jochnick, Chair of the Committee of European Banking Supervisors (CEBS). This is because she referenced lots of nice documents which I’ve linked to in her words.
Europe’s plans to restore confidence in the banking system
I’ve spent the last two days locked in a conference centre in Nice at a key meeting of finance ministers, politicians, policymakers, bankers, insurers and exchanges. You can tell the type of meeting by the number of lashes each person has received by the tongues of their counterparties. Wonderful to watch and be a part of, and there’s far too many things to report so I’m going to cheat and just refer you to Google instead if you want to know more.
