Professor Sir John Vickers will discuss The systemic risk buffer for UK banks – an assessment of the Bank of England proposal at 6pm on Wednesday 20 April 2016. The lecture is organised by the Brevan Howard Centre for Financial Analysis at Imperial College Business School.
Professor Vickers’ research interests span theory and policy, especially relating to competition and regulation. In particular, he is working with Mark Armstrong on questions in incentive theory, the theory of multiproduct monopoly, and bundling. His main current policy-related interests arise from his work in 2010-11 as chair of the Independent Commission on Banking, which recommended fundamental reform to improve stability and competition in UK banking.
The event will be held in the Lecture Theatre One of the Business School within Tanaka Building on Exhibition Road at Imperial’s South Kensington Campus.
