Event summary

The crisis of 2008-9 raised serious concerns about our banks, a group of institutions previously regarded as ‘boring but safe’. Panic in the High St, last minute government rescues and evidence of cynical cheating changed all that.

A decade on, have the reforms changed the business model and culture and do we have any alternative but to trust our banks?
