2016 City lecture

In 2015 we brought you the Deputy Governor for Prudential Regulation of the Bank of England; in 2014, the editor of the Financial Times; and in 2013, the CEO of the world’s largest advertising services company. The 17th City lecture continued our strong tradition of bringing top level speakers to the College with last night’s talk by Charles Roxburgh, the Director General of financial services at HM Treasury. His topic, ‘The re-regulation of financial services: are we there yet?’ was both hugely informative and very well received, outlining the Treasury’s steps since the crisis of 2008 and its broader strategy. The audience, of students, alumni and senior figures from business and the University, asked probing questions which moved the debate on further. As usual, the College laid on an excellent meal before giving time to network, discuss, and enjoy fine cheese and port. You can see more photographs on our Alumni Facebook page.
