The 14th annual edition of City Week will be held in-person in Central London, and also streamed live on our media channels, over two days between 20-21 May 2024. As in previous years, CW2024 is being organised in partnership with the UK Government, the City of London Corporation, TheCityUK, UK Finance and leading City institutions.

City Week brings together more than 1,000 top-level senior decision-makers from UK and overseas financial institutions for a comprehensive programme of cutting-edge presentations, panel discussions, social events and networking. Like previous editions, this year’s forum will feature many well-known names from the global financial services industry, the world of politics and the international regulatory community.

At the core of City Week are four separate summits (see below), which reflect the boardroom agenda of leading financial institutions from across the world.

T+1: Settlement failures and cascading risks

Settlement failures are already in the trillions of dollars annually at T+2. And the US is poised to move to T+1 in a week increasing the chances of cascading risk.

Ready for T+1?

Part one of our in-depth report series, delves into the post-trade financial cycle, highlighting the potential risks associated with the US market transitioning to shorter settlement cycles.

Following the Rules

Today’s episode is a little different to normal. It is a recording of a recent panel discussion from City Week’s AI in Financial Services Leaders Summit which took place in London last week.

I was invited to moderate a panel on the transformative potential of generative AI and we discussed interesting use cases for genAI in the financial services space, how boards and senior managers can best manage the risks relating to the new technology, how regulators could help market participants embrace the opportunities presented by GenAI responsibly and plenty more in between.

I hope you enjoy it.

"Fundamentally you don't create consequential public companies unless you credit consequential private companies"

If you look at our context, we're the sixth largest economy in the world. But as of the beginning of May, we were the third largest capital market by capital raised year to date so we're actually punching considerably above our weight. And the only two economies above us were the US and India. And so, I think that we need to recognise and level set that. But the Capital Markets Industry Task Force was created in part because I think over many years we have built up a series of different pieces of regulation that have operated in isolation, rather than working together
