Conference on Financial System Design: A Comparative Perspective

Sep. 19, 2014
One of the most pressing issues for countries following the recent financial crisis is the design of their financial system: should countries have in place a macroprudential regulator? How should systemic risk be regulated? What should be the role of the central bank? Is a “twin peaks” approach optimal? This conference examined institutional design of financial markets and the role of regulators, alone and in coordination with each other, within these markets.  Domestic and international approaches to regulation were addressed.
