Hughes Hall City Lecture, 2014

On Thursday, May 1st 2014, Hughes Hall was proud to host the fourteenth City Lecture, featuring the Financial Times editor, Lionel Barber, discussing the topic ‘Can Banking Clean Up Its Act?’

Six years after the financial crisis, controversy continues to rage about high pay, professional misconduct and perverse incentives in the banking industry. Yet bankers live in a new regulatory world with stiffer rules on capital, curbs on risky trading activities and a clampdown on the so-called bonus culture. During the lecture, Lionel Barber assessed the progress on reform and examined the broader cultural and professional challenges in modern banking.

If you were unable to attend the lecture, the speech and an accompanying video have been uploaded onto the Financial Times website.

For those who attended, we hope that you enjoyed your evening, and we look forward to welcoming many of you back at Hughes Hall for future events.


Speaker & Guest of Honour, Lionel Barber, Editor of the Financial Times
