Mark Carney: “Will your professional values be distinct from your personal ones? What will you leave those who come after you?”

Incoming Bank of England governor Mark Carney gave a speech on 25 February on rebuilding trust in global banking.

In his speech he emphasised the importance of living the right values, and the need for banks to rediscover their values.  He talked of the duty of boards to define clearly the purpose of their organisations, and the necessity alongside that of employees having “.. a sense of broader purpose, grounded in strong connections to their clients and their communities”.

He ended with the question “Will your professional values be distinct from your personal ones? What will you leave those who come after you?”
