SNS/SIFR Finanspanel – Hur mår Europas banker? What is the State of European Banks?

Var står den europeiska bankindustrin idag? Hur kommer bankerna att anpassa sig till de nya tuffare kraven från reglerarna? I oktober kommer ECB att publicera resultaten av årets stresstester. Vilka reaktioner kan detta utlösa? Dessa är några av de frågor som kommer att diskuteras när SNS/SIFR Finanspanel besöks av professor Arnoud Boot.

What is the current state of European banks? How can the European banking sector adjust to the new, stricter regulatory regime? In October the ECB will publish the result of this year’s stress tests. How will this impact the industry? These are some of the questions that will be addressed by Professor Arnoud Boot at the upcoming SNS/SIFR Finanspanel (in English).
Arnoud Boot is a professor in Corporate Finance and Financial Markets at the University of Amsterdam. His research focuses on banks and banking regulation. Boot is an advisor to several financial institutions on regulation and strategic decision making.
