Conference organised by the Deutsche Bundesbank, the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW Berlin), the European School of Management and Technology (ESMT) and the Center for Financial Studies (CfS)
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 macroprudential 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 macroprudential policies on the financial system.
