Dear JBR Readership,

It is with deep sadness that I inform you that Professor David G Mayes, University of Auckland, sadly passed away on the 29th November 2017. David was a very highly regarded academic in many fields of economics and finance, and in particular our field of banking supervision. He was a committed member of its Editorial Board and a great supporter and friend of the Journal of Banking Regulation.

As a small gesture of his contribution to the field we will be allowing open access to his papers published in the Journal of Banking Regulation. On behalf of the Editorial Board of the Journal of Banking Regulation our condolences go to his family and close friends.
