Symposium on Financial Stability and the Role of Central Banks
In light of the challenges that have emerged in the recent past, central banks and supervisors worldwide have had to adjust their operational and regulatory framework to maintain the proper functioning and strengthen the resilience of the financial system. Alongside these steps, an extensive range of reform measures have been undertaken to increase financial market stability going forward.
Against this backdrop, the Deutsche Bundesbank is hosting a two-day symposium on "Financial Stability and the Role of Central Banks". High-level representatives from academia, politics, financial markets, supervisory authorities and central banks will discuss the current state of the reform process as well as areas where further action might be required. Specifically, the conference covers the following four major topics:
- the relation and potential interaction between monetary policy and financial stability,
- the specific role and mandate of central banks in the new environment,
- the current state of banking regulation and modifications that may be required, and finally,
- the regulatory framework for non-banking participants in the financial system.
The individual sessions will be filmed and the films will be published on the same day.
