New York - Top officials and some of the world's leading policy makers will visit the Reuters bureaus in Washington, D.C., New York, London and Hong Kong from February 28 - March 2 to discuss the outlook with new financial regulation in a series of exclusives interviews. Some interviews, including FDIC Chairman Sheila Bair, will air live on The stories and videos from the closed on-the-record sessions at the Reuters Future Face of Finance Summit will be posted online at


The searing damage of the global financial crisis has started to ease, but markets are far from confident in their future as regulators race to impose hundreds of new rules on bank bonuses, risk taking and capital.

As the reforms come into focus, firms are jostling for any competitive advantage. The exchange merger madness that took hold at the beginning of 2011 gives a glimpse into how the financial landscape may be dominated by new names in the coming months and years.

The Reuters Future Face of Finance Summit will bring in top policymakers and financial leaders to offer their views on who will come out on top. The conversations will examine which countries are emerging as hostile environments for business, which firms may dodge the toughest reforms, which of the global exchange merger deals will stick, and whether, after the dust settles on the reform frenzy, we'll have a safer financial system. 


The Summit will generate exclusive stories and investable insights, as well as online videos and blog postings which can be seen at:
