About the Topic: 

The Reserve Bank of New Zealand is one of the 'two pillars' of financial markets regulation in New Zealand, and is currently undertaking a 'stocktake' of its regulatory powers and functions. Against that background, Toby will discuss how the Reserve Bank decides what regulatory standards to adopt, the role of international standards, the current state of the regulatory stocktake including input from industry and other stakeholders, and the importance of innovation and new ideas to the Reserve Bank's thinking in this area. 


About the Speaker:

Toby Fiennes is the Head of Prudential Supervision at the Reserve Bank of New Zealand. Toby moved from the UK to New Zealand in 2005, initially joining the Reserve Bank as a Special Adviser. In that role, he was engaged in a wide range of projects within the Financial Stability area, including banking supervision and the reviews of the regulatory arrangements for non-bank deposit-takers, insurers and New Zealand’s Anti-Money Laundering (AML) framework. He started his career in Barclays Bank where he worked in a variety of risk management and marketing roles for 10 years. He then joined the Bank of England, transferring to the UK's Financial Services Authority (FSA) at its inception in 1998. He worked at the FSA until 2005, supervising a wide variety of international banks, banking groups and other financial services companies.


There will be time for questions and debate after the presentation.
