Virtual Conference

In a change from our original hopes and plans, we have decided to make the workshop entirely virtual. We are doing this primarily out of an abundance of caution given the current elevated levels of COVID-19.

General Information

The Center for Financial Innovation and Stability (Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta) and the Center for the Economic Analysis of Risk (Georgia State University) are organizing a workshop on How is the COVID-19 experience changing finance? The workshop’s goal is to bring together economists, finance and risk management professionals, and regulators to discuss the long-run effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on market participants, and government authorities.

The COVID-19 pandemic has been a real economic shock to the global economy that had potentially very adverse consequences for the financial condition of individuals and firms. The worst of these possibilities were mitigated by aggressive responses by fiscal, monetary, and regulatory authorities throughout the developed world. Yet the shocks resulting from the pandemic appear likely to have lasting effects on the financial choices of individuals and firms. These shocks may also result in long lasting changes in the conduct of the fiscal, monetary, and regulatory policy in both good times and bad, changes that will also have implications for the private sector. This workshop seeks to better understand how finance is going to change as a result of the COVID-19 experience.
