The Future of Financial Intermediation: Opportunities and Challenges Posed by Regulatory Reforms and New Technologies
Deutsche Bundesbank – IWH – CEPR conference
65343 Eltville am Rhein
The finalization of the Basel III package fundamentally changes the regulatory environment of financial intermediaries. Other rules to foster the soundness and stability of the financial system, such as the resolution framework or the OTC derivatives market reform, are about to be implemented, while the digitization of financial services provision changes the infrastructure of financial markets as well as consumer behavior. New market entrants, e.g. fintechs, non-financial firms, or service providers increase the competitive pressure in the banking industry, challenging traditional bank business models.
This conference seeks to attract high-quality theoretical and empirical contributions on the implications of these changes for both the banking industry and the real economy.
