Financial Intermediation and Risk

The Barcelona GSE Summer Forum Workshop on Financial Intermediation and Risk will run for 1.5 days and will take place online June 10-11, 2021.

This workshop will bring together experts in banking, regulation, and financial economics to discuss the most recent academic research on financial intermediation. We invite submissions of theoretical and empirical contributions on topics that include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Credit and liquidity provision by bank and non-bank financial intermediaries
  • The aggregate real effects of financial shocks and financial intermediation
  • Secular stagnation, debt crises and financial intermediation
  • Capital flows to emerging markets, financial intermediation and regulation
  • Corporate governance of financial institutions
  • Liquidity, hedging and risk management by financial institutions, asset and liability management, maturity mismatch, self-insurance
  • Monetary policy transmission channels through financial intermediaries (the risk-taking channel, unconventional monetary policy and others)
  • Financial crises and systemic risk
  • Macro versus microprudential regulation and supervision
  • The role of institutional investors: market finance versus banks
