The SEACEN Centre is pleased to host its annual Policy Summit, at Sasana Kijang, Bank Negara Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur on 8 September 2017 from 9.00 am to 5.30 pm.

The theme of this year’s Policy Summit is “Shadow Banking and its Financial Stability Implications.”  As the world marks the 10th anniversary of the onset of the Great Financial Crisis (GFC), financial institutions and policymakers are reflecting on the causes and consequences of the GFC, and utilizing this period of relative calm to bolster their preventive and protective mechanisms against future crises, and, in some cases, construct these mechanisms from the start. 

All the while, new methods of saving and investing, depositing and lending, and transferring financial assets are springing up, spurred by advancements in technology and the desire of consumers and the industry for lower costs, speedier services, and higher yields.  Shadow banking, financial technology (FinTech), and fast payments, sometimes separately but often together, occasionally outpace the ability of policymakers to adjust their regulatory systems and stances appropriately. 
The Policy Summit aims to provide clarity of thought on some of these emerging issues.  The Summit features an exciting array of presenters on topics ranging from categorizing shadow banking and its links with traditional financial institutions, to an emerging category of shadow banking that touches both firms and households – online marketplace lending, to the breadth and depth of the regulatory umbrella that should be cast over these activities in a manner that does not block these new beams of financial access from reaching lower-income and marginalized communities. 

Throughout the day, participants will be given ample opportunity to ask questions and otherwise interact with the distinguished presenters and panelists.  The latest draft agenda can be downloaded from *here.
Seats are limited and acceptance to attend will be on a first-come-first-served basis.
