Patrick Jenkins and guests discuss the merits of putting former Goldman Sachs banker Gary Cohn in charge of US deregulation, Lloyds bank’s review of HBOS fraud customers, and Italian banking as UniCredit goes to the market and Intesa ponders a takeover of Generali. With special guest Dennis Kelleher, head of the regulatory think tank Better Markets.
