Financial Services Group – Developments and Initiatives in Credit

Wednesday 19 January, 08:15 – 09:45


This event is sponsored by ING


After a two year break, the Financial Services Group is absolutely delighted to welcome alumni to attend an in-person breakfast.


The way credit markets have extended and diversified during the crisis has been unique and the coming period is going to be a fascinating one as the baton passes between government, banks and different private sector players.


That response to the pandemic has also seen an upsurge in innovation which reflects the ongoing regulatory changes being applied to traditional credit providers. In this maelstrom of change how do we expect the sector to pan out and what do we see as key trends going forward?


To respond to these questions, highlight trends and discuss some of the key innovations we are very fortunate to have a great panel of credit experts to lead the discussion. They are:


Rafael Gonzalo (MBA 93D), MD at IFM Partners. For 2020 Rafael’s team were awarded European specialty debt firm of the year as well as distressed debt by Private Debt Investor; a fantastic background for our discussion.


From the traditional banking world we will be joined by Cyrille Salle de Chou (MBA 93D) who is the Chief Risk Officer for HSBC Retail Bank and Wealth in Europe. His vantage point will provide an insightful view of the consumer market from one of the giants in the space.


Finally, connecting the different credit worlds we have James Parsons joining us from PAG. PAG is one of Asia’s largest alternative fund managers. As a Partner, James runs PAG’s regulatory capital strategies. His funds provide credit and capital solutions for banks balance sheet as they deal with the strains of new regulations such as Basel 4. James has been in the vanguard of developing these strategies and solutions having started back in 1999 when Basel II was first proposed and has worked on this from both a banking and investor perspective.


Please join us for what will be a fascinating discussion where we will have the opportunity to once again mix with peers and classmates.


Limited numbers. Please book early to be sure of a place.
