This dissertation examines the design of regulation for financial institutions fol- lowing the financial crisis of 2008-2009. In the aftermath of the crisis, regulators in many countries tightened regulations governing financial institutions in order to pre- vent future financial panics. The aim of this dissertation is to determine how some of these new regulations will influence the behaviour of financial institutions, and if these regulations will result in a safer and sounder financial system.
