The aim of the conference is to increase the understanding of macroprudential policy, to openly debate with relevant stakeholders its merits and limitations, and to put the conduct of macroprudential policy in a small open economy into an international context. At the conference there will be both international and national high level presenters.

Participation is by invitation only.
