The Macro Finance Research (MFR) will host the Conference on Financial Regulation at the University of Chicago on May 8-9, 2020.
After the financial crisis, there was a reexamination of critical role of financial intermediaries, their regulation and governance structure. New regulations and market forces have changed the structure and quantities of financial products and services. The objective of this conference is to bring together leading academics to discuss recent research on the regulation of financial intermediaries and markets, with broader implications for practice and policy.
Potential research topics include the effect of capital and liquidity requirements on intermediaries and markets, including the household sector, macroprudential regulation, internal and external governance responses to financial regulation as well as remaining gaps, and political economy considerations that are shaping rules and their enforcement. This conference is a sequel to one organized in October 2015.
