GRI-Fields Conference and Workshop | Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences
Stability of Financial Systems: Modelling, Regulation and Stress Testing
A two-day conference will be devoted to unveiling the latest thinking on the nature of financial stability, explained by some of the world’s leading researchers, policy makers and industry practitioners. In addition, a focused one day workshop on stress testing, with applications to systemic risk monitoring and bank regulation, will bring practitioners and researchers alike to the forefront of this challenging new topic.
The stability of the global financial system is the cornerstone of the world economy.
Join Nobel Laureate Robert Engle and a distinguished speaker list of policy makers and researchers from the Bank of Canada, the US Federal Reserve, Bank of England, the European Central Bank, as well as major universities as they unveil their thinking on the most important aspects of financial stability.
The focus of this two-day conference will be on understanding the nature of its stability in the light of the Global Financial Crisis of 2007-2008.
Speakers will answer several important questions including:
- How might the next crisis arise?
- How do financial crises propagate?
- How do new regulatory tools impact the behaviour and stability of banks?
The conference will be followed by a one-day Stress-Testing Workshop which promises both finance practitioners and researchers alike a state-of-the-art overview of the single most important new regulatory means for financial oversight.
Topics will include:
- What is scenario analysis and how should it be used?
- What insights come from it?
- What is the scientific and economic justification for such methods?
- Who gains and who loses under the new stress testing regimes?
