Financial Stability and Financial Intermediary Firms’ Behavior
September 23-24, 2010
A Conference Cosponsored by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and the Review of Corporate Finance Studies (RCFS).
Overview Financial intermediary firms indeed played a central role in the recent financial crisis--yet the reasons for some of their actions are not well understood. This conference aims to promote a better understanding of the corporate-level decisions made by financial intermediaries. This understanding may in turn help regulators promote efficiency and financial stability.
Conference papers will be available from the conference schedule on the web pages of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and the Review of Corporate Financial Studies.
