At the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association
(Sifma) annual meeting in New York yesterday, regulators and
bank and exchange heads discussed securities market
performance, differing views on reform and how these interact
with the US economy’s broader challenges.
Speakers included US Securities and Exchange Commission
chairman Mary Schapiro, US Commodity Futures Trading Commission
chairman Gary Gensler, deputy secretary of the US Treasury Neal
Wolin and Citigroup CEO Vikram Pandit.
Between the long-awaited Volcker rule draft, G-20
designation of G-Sibs (global systemically important banks) and
MF Global’s collapse all transpiring in the past
month, panelists had plenty to debate and defend.
