Conditions in the banking industry, globally and in the UK continue to be challenging, with strong headwinds from ongoing regulatory reforms, falling margins, recent conduct scandals and a volatile economic environment. As banking provides critical systemic stability to the economy, Suvro will talk about whether banks are safe and can be trusted now, or if the sector need further reforms – in the UK and internationally?

Suvro Dutta is a senior audit and risk advisory partner in the Banking Practice at KPMG and has more than 20 years of international experience in the financial services industry across, with particular specialisation in corporate and investment banking. Until recently, he headed up the UK Banking audit practice in KPMG.

Suvro is a regular speaker at a number of industry events and roundtables on governance, conduct and culture and served in the Parliamentary Commission on Banking Standards (PCBS) on secondment. The recommendations from PCBS went into the UK Banking Reform Act, a key legislation which led to important structural changes in the UK banking industry. He is also a member of the Market Practitioner Panel of the FCA, which is an advisory panel to the FCA Board.
