The decline of the investment banking model will lead to increased emphasis on transaction-based revenue. What impact will this have on Operational Risk?

"The reform of the international financial system is not only necessary to prevent a crisis, it is essential to end the current crisis." British Prime Minister Gordon Brown

With so much uncertainty in the marketplace, this is the ideal time to attend SOF's Operational Risk, Compliance and Governance Conference - Issues and Challenges, Co-Sponsored by National Financial, a Fidelity Investments Company.
