Liquidity Risk and Capital Requirements
Liquidity risk and capital requirements have always been a central topic of banking and finance research. Its importance is evidenced and strengthened by the most recent financial crisis. This conference brings together a group of researchers who have conducted stimulating research on this topic. The conference program consists of a rich set of papers that include macro as well as micro, theoretical as well as empirical studies. These papers and their discussions will help better understand what causes liquidity risk, how it spreads to non-financial sectors, and how to manage it. The conference will also encourage a dialogue between leading academics and policy advisors to discuss the effectiveness of existing regulatory frameworks and to explore new ideas for regulatory reforms.
Funding and logistic support is provided by CEAR and the Department of Finance at Georgia State University. Lixin Huang (Georgia State University) and Andrew Winton (University of Minnesota) are the organizers of this conference.
