BY DENISE MCCANN
FRIDAY 8 MARCH 2019
On Thursday 7th March, FinTrU and Queens Management School hosted an event, ‘Resolving Failing Banks: Better Next Time?’ Guest speaker, Patrick Honohan, Governor of the Central Bank of Ireland (2009-2015) gave his insight on the damage the last failures caused and whether the new approach that Banking Authorities are implementing to resolve failing banks can deliver on what it promises.
Riddel Hall, Belfast was filled with attendees intrigued to hear from Patrick Honohan who was in the thick of the post-crisis recovery as Governor of the Central Bank of Ireland and a member of the European Central Bank’s Governing Council between 2009 and 2015. Patrick Honohan discussed the old and new approaches to dealing with bank failure and a breakdown of who really pays for the failure of banks.
Below is a summary of some of the talking points and a gallery of photos from the evening.
