frontiers in finance (march 2008): retail banking in focus
Within the space of a few months, we have seen the onset of a severe credit crunch, a liquidity crisis at Northern Rock leading to a run on the bank and Soci�t� G�n�rale revealing it has lost �4.9 billion ($7.1billion; �3.7 billion) closing out massive unauthorized trades placed by a rogue employee. Some respected commentators are speculating about the onset of a global recession. This edition of frontiers in finance is primarily focused on retail banking, but touches on all of these themes.

Global convergence? Insights into global insurance regulation
ALTHOUGH not entirely unscathed, the global insurance industry has weathered the financial crisis well with few high-profile casualties. Nevertheless, the difficulties experienced by some and the events in the banking sector have acted as a health warning to industry and regulators alike.
