Students welcome CEO of London Stock Exchange

Up Close with Xavier Rolet, 10 February 2010


On Wednesday 10 February, 220 London Business School students will gather to listen to Xavier Rolet, CEO of London Stock Exchange, as part of the new series of Up Close events. Returning to the School after speaking at the Global Leadership Summit in 2009, Xavier has chosen the School as a platform to speak to students about the future of financial regulation and the City.

The event, to be chaired by Professor Sir Andrew Likierman, Dean of London Business School, will see Xavier centre his discussion on learning from the past, securing the future and exploring how regulation can most effectively support the market. 

The recent crisis has shone a light on weaknesses in the economic system, related to market activity, monetary policy and the regulatory architecture. As the leading financial centres begin to move out of recession, Governments across the world are turning their attention to how the causes of the crisis can be addressed to avoid a repeat of the past two years.

Xavier Rolet will argue that effective regulation and market supervision are essential to a stable economic system and that regulation must not only be proportionate and well drafted, but also properly implemented by skilled and informed regulators who are close to the markets they regulate.
