Conference on Stable Funding

September 27, 2013
A conference jointly sponsored by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and the Office of Financial Research.
Overview

Financial intermediaries often finance long-term, illiquid investments with short-term, liquid liabilities. Banks, nonbank financial companies, and short-term funding vehicles are thus exposed to runs and other instabilities as the activities of liquidity and maturity transformation create potential mismatches. Creditors worried about their claims may withdraw funding, potentially resulting in significant losses that can lead to fire sales and failure. The recent financial crisis highlighted these vulnerabilities.

The conference will feature papers and discussions that provide a framework for analyzing the stability of funding, the relationship between opacity and the likelihood of creditor runs, and liquidity premiums. It will also feature a policy panel to discuss such issues as the liquidity risk of large, complex financial institutions and the macroprudential tools available to address funding risk.

Audience
