Leading figures from the worlds of business, law and finance will gather at Fordham University on Oct. 1 and 2 to consider how the regulatory environment continues to influence and shape global markets, in response to the crisis in financial markets that erupted last year.
The conference, “Enhanced Regulation: Integrity in the Global Financial Markets,” is co-sponsored by the Fordham University College of Business Administration and KPMG LLP. Speakers include:
• Robert Greifeld, CEO of The NASDAQ OMX Group;
• Denny Chin, United States district judge for the Southern District of New York;
• Stephen A. Blumenthal, former deputy director of the federal Office of Housing Enterprise Oversight;
• Anne Mulcahy, chair of Xerox; and
• Robert F. Arning, vice chairman of market strategy, KPMG LLP.
The conference will also feature a panel discussion on “Ethics on Wall Street,” with senior executives from leading financial services and investment firms.
“This forum brings together great minds, representing different industries, to share their perspectives on ensuring ethical behavior through responsible business practices and sound fiscal policies,” said Barbara M. Porco, C.P.A., M.B.A., Ph.D., director of program development for the Fordham University Schools of Business Administration. “Ethics is a key component of our curriculum and one that that Fordham instills in its students.”
“We are very pleased to present this conference with Fordham to shed light on some of the leading issues of the day,” said KPMG’s Arning. “Attendees should come away with insights into the needed steps to build sustainable growth and to restore trust and integrity in the global markets.”
