Over the last decade, the global financial system experienced important changes such as deregulation, globalization, technological and financial innovations. However, the financial crisis revealed that despite the improvements in the operational efficiency and management of banks and financial markets, risk management remains sub-optimal and the inter-relationship between capital markets and the financial services industry remains little understood.
It has increasingly been recognized that institutions play an important role in shaping success or failure of the banking and financial sector. The crisis paved the way for fundamental reforms in the regulatory framework and institutions, which in turn initiated a shift towards macro-prudential regulations as well as introduction of the Basel III in banking, the Solvency II in insurance among others. Walker’s review of corporate governance in the UK, and the new EU Directives and Recommendations further highlighted the importance of corporate governance of banks. This period has also witnessed use of unconventional monetary policy tools, such as quantitative easing and signalling, some of them were more successful than others.
The Conference aims to provide a forum for debate among researchers and policy makers from around the world on the performance of banking and financial markets, financial stability and risk management, and the monetary, regulatory and institutional environment, in light of the recent financial crisis. Topics of special interest, although not confined to the ones below, are:
- Financial Stability: Competition, liquidity, pro-cyclicality; risk assessment (systemic; individual institutions); financial crises and resolution
- Financial regulation and Monetary policy: Basel III, macro-prudential regulation; monetary policy strategy under uncertainty; unconventional types of monetary policy, law and finance, the role of committees in setting monetary policy
- Bank management: Role of leaders, risk management, internal control, corporate governance & remuneration reforms, mergers and acquisitions and bankruptcy
- Financial Markets: Globalization and integration, asset pricing and housing bubbles, behavioural finance
- Political economy: Role of public opinion and election, inequality and redistribution
- Institutional development: the interaction of formal (political economy, regulations and its implementation) and informal (e.g., social norms, psychology) institutions with policy actions during the crisis.
