FRIAS-Konferenz 2019


 Conference on Systemic Risk and Financial Stability

September 19th/20th, 2019

Freiburg Institute for Advanced Studies (FRIAS)

The conference will bring together researchers working in the areas of finance, economics and statistics to discuss new research on sources of instabilities in financial systems. This includes among others the modelling of systemic risks in financial networks, the analysis of interbank loan markets as well as the investigation of risks inherent in shadow banking. In addition, the conference aims at advancing research that focusses on the link between financial markets and the real economy. Further, it will provide a forum to discuss methods that improve the resilience of the financial system to adverse shocks and that aid to prevent potential spillover effects to the real economy.
