A high profile list of presenters was assembled for this seminar. The debt crisis issues evident in the market today are a consequence of the too-big-to-fail institutions that took on too much risk, thereby exposing themselves to potential insolvency from contagion and counterparty risk plus a lack of regulatory and supervisory integration. The impact has been acute with a noticeable slow down of property lending. Opportunities for new and existing entrants will improve but against this will be the need to operate within a strict regulatory regime.
