What tools are available to measure and forecast the stability of the financial system? And how can we use the information derived from these tools to inform and implement regulatory policy?

Keynote speakers include:

  • Richard Berner, director of the Treasury's Office of Financial Research
  • Nellie Liang, director of the Office of Financial Stability Policy and Research at the Federal Reserve Board
  • Sandra Pianalto, president and CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland

Papers and panel discussions will feature academics, policymakers, and market participants addressing topics such as financial stability indexes; the economics of risk data; securitization and use of sensitive data; networks and contagion; financial stability and aggregate credit; and financial stability and banks. .
