The financial industry is beginning to emerge from the biggest shake-up in its history. According to the Financial Times, “a decade from now, financiers may look back and conclude that June 2015… marked a turning point for the banking industry and how it is perceived by society”. In London, Chancellor George Osborne announced in his Mansion House speech he would begin selling off the government’s 80 per cent stake in RBS and that “ratcheting up ever-larger fines” is not a “long-term answer”. After eight years of heightened regulatory scrutiny and large penalties to punish and deter wrongdoing, it appears that bankers might return to a normalised operating environment.
