Papers-Presentations from Cleveland Fed-OFR Conference on Financial Stability Analysis

We're sorry that you missed “Financial Stability Analysis: Using the Tools, Finding the Data,” a sold-out conference sponsored by the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland and the Office of Financial Research on May 30-31 in DC.

You'll also find videos of keynote presenters Richard Berner, director of the OFR, and Sandra Pianalto, president and CEO of the Cleveland Fed.

The papers and panel discussions featured 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; financial stability and banks; and development of macroprudential policy.

And if you're interested in tracking stress in the financial system, you'll want to follow the Cleveland Financial Stress Index (CFSI), which is updated daily and combines 16 measures of conditions in 6 major types of financial markets: credit, equity, foreign exchange, funding, real estate, and securitization.
