It's a pleasure to be back at the IIF's Washington Policy Summit.

Last time I spoke here (in 2011) it was still early in the international financial reform process. From the IIF's perspective at the time, there were three major concerns:

- The consistency of implementation across the G20;

- The possibility of significant regulatory arbitrage in shadow banking; and

- Whether the FSB/G20's ambitious agenda would impair the recovery.

Today, those debates have largely been settled.
