Bank Governance Leadership Network

Leading global banking in a new era

The BGLN brings together leaders from among the largest banks globally – board directors and senior executives – with regulators, investors, and other stakeholders and subject matter experts to discuss the most important issues facing complex global banks, their boards, and the financial system.

The financial crisis revealed the need for a forum in which the boards, executives, and regulators of global banks could address key challenges and risks and to discuss the industry’s direction. Since 2009, the Bank Governance Leadership Network (BGLN) has provided a platform for bank leaders to engage with peers, with key stakeholders, and with subject matter experts through exclusive roundtable discussions on the issues shaping the competitive, operating, risk, and regulatory landscape for global banks. Banking faces a continuing evolution driven by technologies that are changing the way banks operate and producing new sources of competition, new partners, and new risks. Leaders of large banks must also navigate ever-changing economic and geopolitical forces shaping financial markets and evolving expectations regarding their role in society.

The BGLN is organized and led by Tapestry Networks and supported by EY, one of the largest networks of professional services providers in the world. The BGLN provides unique opportunities for candid dialogue among the non-executive directors and senior executives of leading global banks, regulators, policy-makers, investors, technologists, and other stakeholders through private roundtable discussions, larger meetings of the Financial Services Leadership Network bringing together participants from across the ecosystem, including the annual Financial Services Leadership Summit, and research work streams focused on critical issues confronting the sector.
