The International Conference on Banking and Finance London 2016 which was proudly hosted by School of Business, London South Bank University (LSBU) and co-hosted by Newcastle Business School, Northumbria University and Guildhall Faculty of Business and Law, London Metropolitan University. It took place from 1 June to 3 June, 2016.
The conference provided a platform for academics, research students, policy makers and practitioners to present and discuss major critical banking and finance challenges and issues.

The conference took place at LSBU’s Southwark campus, which is located on the beautiful south bank of the River Thames, within walking distance to the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben and the London Eye.
I am delighted that the Business School here at LSBU is hosting this prestigious event that brings together thought leaders in their respective fields to address key issues relevant to banking and finance policy, in both a national and international context.
