New BBA report - Beyond Boundaries: how to drive regulatory coherence

The BBA today publishes a new report which calls for a more coordinated global system of regulation for the banking industry.

The regulatory regime governing the world's financial markets is rightly being fundamentally recast in response to the financial crisis. The changes have been far-reaching and profound. Led by the G20, policymakers have shown a desire and willingness to coordinate their actions to reflect the fact that global markets are now more seamless than ever before.

Five years on from the recognition of the need for a coordinated response to the financial crisis, this report uses three case studies to examine if the ambition of a coherent global regulatory framework has been achieved and explores the consequences that inconsistent regulation can have for banks and their customers.
