Macroprudential Policy Conference

Danmarks Nationalbank, the European Department of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), and the Center for Financial Frictions (FRIC) at Copenhagen Business School (CBS) are hosting a conference devoted to discussing the role of macroprudential policy for financial stability on 19 November 2018, in Copenhagen.

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. See link to the discussion paper  which sets the stage for the conference.

Participation is by invitation only.
