Register Now

Currently, the world is changing faster than anyone can keep up. With so many unknowns surrounding COVID-19, the government must keep rolling out financial programs to maintain what was a strong economy until it can return to normalcy. Every financial crisis has been triggered by one thing — a loss of confidence. Each of them was subsequently extinguished by governmental or private sector actions that rebuilt that confidence.

Drawing on some of the best lessons of prior financial crises, industry experts and former regulators William Isaac and Thomas P. Vartanian will share insights on ways for the financial industry to move forward in this current crisis and analyze the actions taken by Congress, Treasury and the Regulators to address the growing issues.

Key takeaways include:
  • How the Economy May Evolve
  • What the Government Has Done and Will Do For Banks & Borrowers
  • Supporting Customers
  • Post Crisis Expectations
