This year’s conference focuses on the problems associated with using prudential regulation to achieve financial stability. The recent financial crisis exposed the existence of regulatory imperfections that encouraged excessive risk-taking and increased system vulnerabilities. The resulting high cost of the crisis in many countries in terms of lost aggregate income, wealth, and increased unemployment has reinforced the need to improve financial stability within and across countries. That has been the goal of recent reforms to the prudential regulatory framework. Questions to be considered at the conference include: How has the regulatory environment changed in recent years? Have we ‘gotten it correct’ with respect to capital regulatory requirements, liquidity regulatory requirements and the safety net? How do the reforms interplay with market discipline, risk-taking incentives and risk management arrangements? Does the new regulatory framework permit the introduction of financial innovation, and the associated benefits, without increasing disruptive financial risk?
In their discussions, the participants will illuminate and explore the rapidly evolving landscape in traditional microprudential regulation, as well as in more recently developed macroprudential regulation. Greater economic interdependence and unification among countries requires increased regulatory cooperation and harmonization across national financial markets and institutions to achieve and maintain greater stability. A number of sessions at the conference will discuss the costs and benefits of the changes to date, and new proposals that are under development and review.
