The Bank of England that has emerged from the financial crisis is very different – indeed, barely recognisable – from the one that went in. The aim of this lecture is to outline the Bank’s pre-crisis role in the UK’s financial regulation framework and to explain how the UK’s legislative response to the financial crisis has fundamentally changed that role, with the result that the Bank now has more responsibility (and greater accompanying powers) than at any time in its 320-year history.
