WEBINAR (Re)viewing Twin Peaks in Australia and Abroad

27 January 2022, 6pm-7.30pm (AEDT)

As the Australian Law Reform Commission (ALRC) pursues its inquiry into the legislative framework for corporations and financial services regulation, it is timely to review the Twin Peaks model of financial regulation and its impact on the broader regulatory landscape. Please join us for the webinar ‘(Re)viewing Twin Peaks in Australia and Abroad’. The webinar will feature a panel of prominent speakers, including former Chairs of APRA and ASIC, who will talk about the evolution and impact of the Twin Peaks model in Australia and abroad. The webinar will also launch a recent book on the Twin Peaks model: The Cambridge Handbook of Twin Peaks Financial Regulation, edited by Andrew Godwin and Andrew Schmulow (Cambridge University Press, June 2021).
