What tools are available to measure and forecast the stability of the financial system?  Do we have the data to populate these tools? What challenges do the data present?  What are the policy applications of the information derived from these tools?

To explore these questions, the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland and the Office of Financial Research are co-sponsoring a conference, “Financial Stability Analysis: Using the Tools, Finding the Data,” and invite you to attend. Our objective is to highlight research and advance the dialogue on financial stability tools and policies that affect the financial services industry. This conference will be held on May 30 - 31, 2013, at the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, in Washington, D.C.

The conference will focus on: research and practical experience in using tools that measure potential threats to financial stability; and the challenges related to including supervisory and other confidential data in these tools. Accordingly, the agenda will feature research and policy sessions that include presentations and discussion panels on related topics; it will bring together academics, policymakers, and market participants.

RESEARCH FORUM

These sessions will follow the format of an academic workshop and will comprise submitted papers that address the development of tools to measure and forecast financial stability and issues related to data for these tools, particularly the problems associated with using confidential data.

POLICY DISCUSSIONS

These sessions will provide a platform for speakers and panelists from industry, regulatory agencies, policymaking agencies, and academia to share their insights on the policy applications of information from forecasting tools to preserve financial stability.
