Conference Announcement and Agenda
Supervising Large, Complex Financial Institutions: Defining Objectives and Measuring Effectiveness
Friday, March 18, 2016

The aftermath of the financial crisis has been characterized by renewed attention to bank supervision and regulation, especially in the context of the largest financial institutions. Supervisory practices for these firms have undergone major changes in response to a number of policy and legislative initiatives. This conference will discuss the objectives of supervision of large, complex financial institutions and ways to measure the effectiveness of the supervision of these firms. Senior policymakers, supervisors, and prominent academics will provide their views about the goals and objectives of supervision, the distinction between supervision and regulation, and the approaches that can be taken to measure or assess supervisory success and effectiveness. The conference will include presentations of empirical and theoretical research as well as panel discussions and broader discussions with the audience.

The conference aims to bring together financial economists, macroeconomists, practitioners, and policymakers. The conference is by invitation only.
