The Future of Banking Regulations

The Future of Banking Regulation

Date: 24-25 September, 2009 
Location: Frankfurt, Germany

A Conference organized by the Risk Management Lab, Imperial College London and the Deutsche Bundesbank

Call for Papers

This is a period of unprecedented uncertainty in the appropriate direction of financial regulation. The financial crisis of the last two years hit the banking sector just as a major new system of banking regulation, Basel II, was coming into force. How should bank regulators and the industry react to recent events in order to restore stability and prevent a recurrence of the present turmoil?

We invite academic research contributions around (but not limited to) the following issues relevant to the future of banking regulation: 
• How should systemic risk be reflected in banking regulation? 
• How should liquidity risk be regulated?
• To what extent should regulation rely on internal models and in which circumstances should it focus on ad-hoc measures? What role should model risk play in regulation?
• Should bank business models be restricted? 
• Should restrictions be placed on the remuneration of bank staff?
• What disclosure requirements should be placed on banks?
• How may one achieve a balance between banks’ efficiency and prudential regulation?
