EBA to promote discussion on systemically important institutions

08 October 2013

The European Banking Authority (EBA) is organising a Policy Research Workshop to discuss measures on how to regulate and resolve systemically important institutions. This workshop, which will bring together leading economists from supervisory authorities, as well as top-academics, provides a forum for presenting academic papers on policy issues on this topic that are relevant at EU and global level.

Discussions will be held on 14 and 15 November and will focus on the design of adequate mechanisms for monitoring and mitigating systemic risk, as well as on instruments for limiting taxpayers' losses, should a systemically important institution default.

Keynote participants attending the workshop include Erkki Liikanen, Governor of the Bank of Finland, and Mark J. Flannery, BankAmerica Eminent Scholar in Finance, University of Florida, USA.

Please note that this workshop is aimed only at invited supervisors and academics.
