Conduct Risk is high on the agenda for financial services firms. In the UK alone, PPI will have an impact for years to come, and banks have put aside billions of pounds in PPI provision.

ECN’s Conduct Risk Summit will explore how good conduct and culture can improve customer/client journeys, reduce regulatory capital requirement and create a significant slowdown in losses. The high-level, interactive and off-the-record discussions will reveal how firms can enhance their working practices, software and systems to better face the rising tide of conduct risk.

Headquartered in Toronto, Canada’s financial sector is recognised as one of the world’s strongest. In 2014, the country’s banking system was ranked #1 in the world for financial strength by Moody’s. Toronto’s reputation and its financial institutions are underpinned by Canada’s ranking as the world’s soundest banking system six years in a row by the World Economic Forum (2008-2013). A rich heritage The city’s flourishing financial services industry is powered by a multilingual, multicultural, and diverse talent base – with its population speaking over 100 different languages.
