Achieving Sustainable Financial Stability
While still struggling with the financial and sovereign debt crisis, the financial markets, the real economy and governments seem to be experiencing slightly less tension. The discussion can now be shifted from imminent crisis management to longer-term financial stability considerations. Banks and other financial intermediaries have to make adjustments to their business models which allow them to be sustainably profitable without taking too much risk and irrespective of the economic environment. The regulatory requirements need to be in line with proper incentives, and macro prudential tools have to be implemented sensibly.
This conference is designed to provide a forum for debate on how to achieve sustainable financial stability. The discussion will focus on the long-term effects of changing economic conditions, additional regulatory requirements and new macro prudential policies on the financial system.
The dinner speech will be held by Andreas Dombret (Deutsche Bundesbank). The keynote speaker will be Jan Pieter Krahnen (Center for Financial Studies, Frankfurt). The conference will also feature a high-ranking policy panel.
We would like to invite you to participate in the conference and submit theoretical and empirical papers on topics including:
Sustainable business models of financial intermediaries
- Competition and financial stability
- Risk-adjusted profitability of banks and insurance companies
- Banks’ market entrance and exit
- Low-interest-rate environment and profitability
- Cross-country financial intermediation and capital flows
Long-term implications of the regulatory and macro prudential requirements
- Too-big-to-fail problem
- Implementation of macro prudential policies
- Effects of higher capital and liquidity requirements in banking and insurance on the real economy
- Indirect effects on less regulated or unregulated financial intermediaries (shadow banks)
