Ferdinand Pecora Prize

Since 2017 the Scientific Committee of the MBF launched the Ferdinand Pecora Prize for the Regulation of Banking and Finance.

The Prize draws on the fact that, before migrating to New York, the prosecutor leading the famous Pecora Hearings was born in Nicosia (Enna, Sicily) in 1882.

The Prize goes to distinguish Scholars or Officials who have striven in innovative ways to improve regulation and curb financial instability.

The Prize in 2017 went to Dr. Andrew G. Haldane (Bank of England)
