SESSION I | EVOLVING LANDSCAPE OF FINANCIAL INTERMEDIATION
The international financial crisis and the subsequent reforms in financial regulation, the current monetary policy framework and the low economic growth and interest rate environment have had significant implications on banks’ business models and on financial intermediation in general, including the activity of insurers and pension funds. This session discusses the main challenges imposed by this changed environment on financial institutions’ profitability, behavior toward risks and on overall financial stability.

SESSION II: MACROPRUDENTIAL POLICY ISSUES
Even though several countries have implemented macroprudential policies in the aftermath of the financial crisis, questions remain concerning their effectiveness. Overall, instruments are found to be more adequate to smooth out the financial cycle during a boom than to help economic recovery during a bust. This session discusses possible issues arising from the implementation of macroprudential policy: defining the optimal policy stance; availability of policy instruments to mitigate vulnerabilities in the downturn of the financial cycle (e.g. excessive indebtedness, NPL); the interactions of policy instruments in the mitigation of systemic risk (e.g. interaction of capital and liquidity requirements; interaction with other policies).

Chair: João Santos, Federal Reserve Bank of New York

SESSION III: FRONTIERS OF RESEARCH IN RISK ANALYSIS AND POLICY
The aim of this session is to critically review the most commonly used methodologies in the analysis of systemic risks and their mitigation and to discuss the most promising advances in research in order to overcome its limitations (e.g., extensions to DSGE models in order to consider heterogeneous agents, occasionally binding constraints; contributions from behavioural economics).
