Join us for the Financial Stability Conference held virtually on November 19–20, sponsored by the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland and the Office of Financial Research
The Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland and the Office of Financial Research invite you to attend the 2020 Financial Stability Conference: Stress, Contagion, and Transmission, which will be held virtually on November 19–20, 2020.
The pandemic has provided an authentic, severely adverse stress event through which we can glean specific lessons and apply particular remedies. Though the triggering event was different from what had been expected, the response to the 2008–2009 financial crisis created a suite of tools and playbooks for crisis response. Given current events, understanding exactly how these tools were or might have been implemented, along with how effective they have proven, may help illuminate lessons from the market and institutional responses to the pandemic.
The first day of the program features opening remarks by Loretta J. Mester, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland, and a keynote address by Governor Michelle W. Bowman, Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System.
The final day of the program features opening remarks by Dino Falaschetti, Director of the Office of Financial Research, and a keynote address by Markus K. Brunnermeier, Edwards S. Sanford Professor of Economics, Director of the Bendheim Center for Finance, Princeton University.
