Description

Shadow Banking: Past, Present, Future - A Symposium Presented by the Review of Banking & Financial Law

Many observers of the U.S. financial system blame the shadow banking system for the Great Recession of 2008. The shadow banking system is commonly defined as the chain of financial intermediaries engaged in providing credit by relying largely on short-term liabilities to support long-term assets with limited regulatory supervision. This symposium, co-sponsored by Boston University School of Law and the Boston Bar Association, brings together financial practitioners and leading scholars in financial law and economics to examine the history, function and regulation of the shadow banking system. Panelists will focus on four topics: (1) what the shadow banking system is, (2) the investment techniques and technologies employed by the financial sector, (3) how the Dodd-Frank Act of 2010 attempts to regulate shadow banking, and (4) where shadow banking will go from here.
