BoE’s Tucker says FCA may have to intervene to correct accounting failures

Speaking at the British Bankers' Association annual meeting in London today (October 17), Tucker said discrepancies between banks' valuations of their own assets and the market value could force the FCA to intervene to correct valuations.
