Banco de Portugal published today the report on the international conference entitled ‘Banking Conduct Supervision: new challenges ten years after the financial crisis’, which, on 25 September 2018, marked the 10th anniversary of the start of the international financial crisis and the explicit attribution to Banco de Portugal of a banking conduct supervision mandate.

The conference, held in Lisbon, brought together speakers from around the world to reflect on the banking conduct supervision agenda and the growing challenges for consumer protection in the area of financial products and services, in particular those arising from financial innovation in a digital ecosystem.
