Ghost of Scandals Future: Great Expectations

Brandon Davies

The litany of great financial scandals is long, and sadly unending.  Dickens himself covers scandals we would recognise today in Little Dorrit and Nicholas Nickleby.  Beyond Dickens, the South Sea Bubble (of course), railway shares, bonds in newly independent countries (Kingdom of Poyais), never again... IOS, Saavundra, Rolls Razor, Bank of Gibraltar, BCCI, never again... endowment mortgages, Barlow Clowes, Equitable Life, Maxwell, Lloyd's names, Lehman Brothers, payment protection insurance, never again... This symposium seeks, through the ghosts of scandals past, present and future, to see what lessons we can learn and to assess which is rosier, the future of finance or of financial scandals.

Brandon Davies is senior independent non-executive director (SINED) of Gatehouse Bank plc (an Islamic Bank in London) where he has helped to establish the “Gatehouse Thought Leadership Programme”. He has worked with institutions notably in Malaysia, London and Kuwait to build on this role. He is also SINED of Premier European Capital Limited, a private equity company and is also the CEO of dRisk.biz, a company he founded.

Brandon is a member of the Financial Markets Group at the London School of Economics (LSE) and lectures extensively on subjects in banking and risk management and has written numerous papers and articles on these subjects for organisations such as the ACCA, Cass Business School, Central Banking, the LSE, Lombard Street Research and the Financial Times. 

Until December 2009 Brandon was Managing Director of the Global Association of Risk Professionals Risk Academy. In that capacity Brandon has produced five books on Basel II and risk management, Governance, Supervision and Enterprise Risk Management. These books form the basis of certification programs in both banks and Central Banks in China and Indonesia.

Brandon has over 30 years of work experience in the banking sector, his positions included Head of Retail Market Risk and Treasurer of the retail businesses of Barclays Bank, and he was also a member of the banks executive committee. Prior to this appointment he was Managing Director of Financial Engineering at BZW and later of Structured Products at BZW and Barclays Capital.  Brandon holds a degree in economics from University College London.
