    Global Financial Markets Center Duke Directors Training 8:00 AMLaw School 3041

    Large banking organizations operate in a constantly evolving competitive landscape. Changes to regulation, cyber threats, emerging financial technology, and rising interest rates all present challenges, as well as opportunities, for banks with $10bn and above in consolidated assets. In addition, lapses in corporate governance at large banks continue to erode consumers' trust in legacy financial institutions and harm franchise value. Guiding a large regional banking organization through such turbulence can feel like a daunting task for directors and senior executives. This training program is designed to equip attendees with the knowledge and perspective necessary to address the most pressing issues facing large banks today. Sponsored by the Global Financial Markets Center. For more information, please contact Lee Reiners at reiners@law.duke.edu.
