SAFE Conference on Financial Market Policy

November 17, 2013

We are informing our community about an event of interest at the Goethe University Frankfurt on November 29th. This institution will hold the conference on "Conference on Financial Market Policy."

The following is a brief description from their webpage

"The regulation and supervision of financial institutions has been subject to a comprehensive reform, ever since the current financial crisis broke out. This has remained a controversial topic, high on the agenda of a number of international fora (G20, FSB, BIS, etc.). Financial crises come with significant social costs. At the same time, a robust and resilient financial system is a necessary condition for a healthy economic system – a potential trade-off, calling for an appropriate policy response. The challenge is to define a legislative and supervisory framework, which will strengthen financial markets' capacity to serve a useful purpose.

Against this background, the Center of Excellence SAFE is organizing its first Frankfurt Conference on Financial Market Policy. The conference will bring together policymakers, academics as well as industry participants in three panel sessions (“One market, one supervisor”, “Making banks failable” and “What’s up for banks – and their clients”). The objective is to foster an open debate and to contribute to a general public’s capacity to evaluate arguments and appraise policy initiatives."
