This half-day workshop, held in the context of the International risk Management Conference co-organized by the New York University Stern Salomon Center for the Study of Financial Institutions and the University of Florence, will explore the increasingly intertwined nature of risk management processes and regulation. The focus will be put on the practitioners perspective.
The workshop will thus come to grips with the interplay of regulation and risk management in a period where risk assessment methodologies are becoming increasingly complex and the regulatory and supervisory framework of the financial sector is getting more intrusive (e.g. increasing monitoring of business models of FIs; additional capital buffers: new powers for resolution authorities on early intervention and resolution planning).
Some of the key questions which the workshop is likely to address are the following:

  • Should financial stability be achieved through activist supervision or should legislators and regulators rely on the production of limited yet credible rules?
  • Do regulators have the administrative and resource capacity to actively supervise financial institutions’ conduct, including internal risk management processes and business models?
  • Knowing the excessive risk-taking that characterised the financial industry in the past and the un-encouraging effectiveness of self-regulation, does the alternative, light-weighted regulatory approach still has a future?
  • Last, but not least, how can risk managers deal with regulatory risk in the financial sector?

The workshop will bring together both bank and non-bank actors to illustrate, analyse and engage with those challenges.

FBF Annual Conference: ‘Institutions and the Crisis’ @ Villa Schifanoia
Apr 26 all-day
FBF Annual Conference: 'Institutions and the Crisis' @ Villa Schifanoia | Firenze | Toscana | Italy

The annual conference of the Florence School of Banking and Finance, organised at the European University Institute (EUI) brings together leading economists, lawyers, political scientists and policy makers to critically analyse, review and debate the most salient elements and gaps of Europe’s post-crisis institutional architecture.

Organisers:

Franklin Allen | Brevan Howard Centre Imperial College
Elena Carletti | BAFFI CAREFIN Bocconi University and European University Institute
Mitu Gulati | Duke University

Background:

The crisis has turned Europe’s economic and financial governance into a patchwork of bodies, instruments and rules that are hard to disentangle. Against this background, the purpose of this conference is to critically analyse, review and debate the most salient elements and gaps of Europe’s post-crisis institutional architecture.

More specifically, the conference aims:
  • to draw analytical and practical lessons from the crisis management solutions provided by European Union institutions
  • to interrogate how courts discussed, challenged and legitimized the EU’s key crisis-led decisions
  • to look ahead and boldly ask and discuss what should be the Economic and Monetary Union’s optimal institutional set-up – also in light of a renewed and conceivably more dynamic French-German cooperation moment.

Sessions:

  • Session 1: A Look Back: Evaluating European Institutions’ Crisis Management
  • Session 2: Disentangling The Crisis And The Courts
  • Session 3: The Way Forward: The Eurozone’s Institutional Prospects
