Global Policymakers Series (GPS): Second Quarter Summit 2021

Thursday, June 24

Global Policymakers Series (GPS)

Second Quarter Summit 2021

Overview

Global Policymakers Series (GPS) – presented quarterly – educates members of CFA Society New York, and members of our sister societies, on global policy matters.

The financial consequences of the Great Recession led to historic changes in monetary policy, marked by a substantial advancement in the regulation of banks and financial markets overall. The impact of legislation produced in response to the financial stresses brought on by COVID-19 is likely to be even more impactful. Such trends demonstrate just how valuable an understanding of global policy, and changes in regulatory standards, is to financial professionals in managing their careers and in offering quality client services. Through GPS, CFA Society New York educates on both fronts, and does so through a lens devoid of any political or ideological noise.
