Global banking body may be needed-FSA
Huw Jones - Oct 14, 2009
LONDON (Reuters) - A global body with legal powers may be needed over time to enforce the world’s new financial rules, the Financial Services Authority (FSA) said on Wednesday.
The FSA’s newly appointed and first director of international affairs, Verena Ross, said the Financial Stability Board (FSB) was key to ensuring all gaps in regulation between securities, insurance and banking sectors were plugged.
Formerly known as the Financial Stability Forum, the FSB was expanded in April to include central bankers and finance ministry and regulatory officials from all Group of 20 (G20) countries.
