The global financial services industry has been rocked by a number of crises in the years since the 2008 financial crisis, which saw Lehman Brothers being liquidated and Bear Stearns and Merrill Lynch sold at bargain prices. The industry has been reshaped, particularly in the way that it is regulated, causing significant strain particularly for large, international banks. Several significant regulatory changes seem to signal that tightening regulation may be accelerating. Should this trajectory continue, the size and shape of the financial services industry is likely to change substantially over the next few years, possibly arriving at an end-state that may not have been intended.

Meanwhile, regulatory changes in the banking sector in Africa are likely to have profound effect on business practices across the continent.

Join the Centre for Dynamic Markets for a discussion with David Hodnett, deputy CEO at Barclays Africa, who will consider the impact of global regulatory changes on Africa's financial services sector as well as guest speaker Dr Leyland Hazlewood, CEO of Dimpex and author of The Ultimate Guide to Doing Business in Africa.


David Hodnett is the Deputy Chief Executive Officer and Chief Executive of our South Africa Operations. He joined the Group in 2008 as the Chief Risk Officer and became the Group's Financial Director in 2010.

In December 2013, David was appointed as Deputy Chief Executive Officer, and in August 2016, David's responsibilities were extended to include responsibility for our South Africa Banking Business, comprising Retail and Business Bank and Corporate Investment Bank.
