Fireside chat with Sam Woods, Deputy Governor, Prudential Regulation
Tuesday 4 February

The Financial Services industry has been and continues to face many changes and challenges both from within and without not least of which is a likely Brexit. Overlaying that is an ever developing mosaic of local and global regulations to ensure a better and safer industry for all stakeholders and ensure the industry can be a force for good.

 

With that in mind we are delighted that Sam Woods has agreed to update alumni on the PRA’s work in the UK and more widely to help maintain and build the UK’s status as a leading financial centre.

 

Come along and listen to Sam speaking to Richard Rous (MBA 06D) from Lloyds on the latest developments at this crucial time.

 

Sam Woods (MBA 98D) assumed the role of Deputy Governor for Prudential Regulation and Chief Executive Officer of the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) on 1 July 2016. As Deputy Governor for Prudential Regulation and CEO of the PRA, Sam Woods is also a member of the Bank of England’s Court of Directors, the Prudential Regulation Committee, the Financial Policy Committee, and the Board of the Financial Conduct Authority.

 

Sam’s previous role was Executive Director of Insurance at the PRA. In this role, Sam was responsible for overseeing the monitoring and regulation of over 600 life and general insurance firms. Sam joined the Financial Services Authority (FSA) in 2011 and transferred to the Bank of England in 2013 with the integration of the PRA. He served as Director for Financial Stability Strategy and Risk, and prior to that was Director for Domestic UK Banks Supervision.
