Define what you Perceive as the Largest Risks Facing the International Banking System?

Whilst the international banking system continues to recover and repair the impacts of the Global Financial Crisis (GFC), the banking industry is encountering a new period of volatility. But whether aimed at the GFC, or as what some call, the impending second GFC, countless conferences and summits have been held in an attempt to structure an organism that eliminates or at best, minimize the impacts and risks that reside within the international banking system. Whilst easy to comment upon, undertaking such a task is gargantuan in nature.

Today, it is not one risk the system faces, but many. Alone each are problematic. However, these risks are intertwined, with changes in one being felt in another, and together they indeed represent a clear and present danger to the international banking system.
