Societal Fault Lines and Credit Risk:
The Impact of Current Economic, Institutional and Political Developments on Credit and Risk
1 – 2 October 2015
GRETA Associati (Venice, Italy), Center on Sustainable Architecture for Finance (SAFE) at Goethe University Frankfurt (Frankfurt, Germany), the University of Zurich (Zurich, Switzerland) and Intesa Sanpaolo (Milan, Italy) are co-sponsors of a Conference to be held in Venice on October 1-2, 2015. The objective of the Conference is to bring together academics, practitioners and PhD students working in the area of risk management. The conference will provide an opportunity for participants engaged in research at the forefront of this area to discuss both the causes and implications of recent events in financial markets and may, in turn, suggest fruitful directions for future research. The Conference, organised under the auspices of the Department of Economics of the University Ca’ Foscari of Venice, ABI – Italian Banking Association and European Investment Bank, is the fourteenth of a series dedicated to various aspects of credit risk.
The organizers encourage submissions of papers on any topic within the overall theme of the conference and in the following areas in particular:
- Wealth inequality, firm financing and credit risk
- Is local wealth inequality affecting the quality of institutions and the choice over market versus bank finance, and thereby determining corporate finance and credit risk outcomes?
- Home ownership and credit risk
- Are measures promoting home ownership or financial innovations responding to an increase in ownership demand, for example, resulting in more credit risk?
- Collateral availability, credit and risk
- Is the availability of collateral determining credit granting and credit risk?
- Banking supervision and credit risk
- Is the level and quality of bank supervision leading to an optimal level of credit risk?
- What is the impact of the institutional organization of banking supervision on credit risk?
- Central bank policies and credit risk
- Are monetary conditions drivers of bank credit risk taking? Under all circumstances?
