Description:


The Center for Financial Innovation and Stability (Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta) and the Center for the Economic Analysis of Risk (Georgia State University) are organizing a workshop on The Evolving Structure of the Financial Services Industry: Causes and Effects. We will hold the conference in-person at the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta on December 5-6, 2024. The workshop’s goal is to bring together economists, finance and risk management professionals, and regulators to consider how and why the structure of the financial services industry is evolving, and what that means for customers and financial stability.

The structure of the financial services sector has evolved over the past few decades in response to a variety of factors, including changes in technology and in regulation. For example, the growth of nonbank financial providers reflects both changes in technology that facilitate new entrants and differences in regulation that impose higher costs on some types of bank intermediated finance. Further, the structure is likely to continue evolving as a result of the lagged and prospective changes in technology and regulation. Moreover, the changing structure of the financial system is likely to have implications for social welfare, such as for the conduct of financial services providers and for the stability of the financial system. This conference will look backward at how the financial system has evolved in response to changes in regulation and technology, along with the implications of those changes for the users of the financial system and for financial stability. It may also look forward to how recent developments in technology and regulation might affect the structure of the financial services industry.

We invite academics, professionals, and regulators to submit papers and/or ideas for panel discussions for this workshop. Long abstracts or, preferably, complete manuscripts may be submitted on the full range of issues associated with the evolving structure of the financial services industry including, but not limited to:

  • The effect of technology and regulation on the structure of the financial services industry.
  • The costs and/or benefits of specific changes in the structure for the consumers of financial services.
  • The effect of the changing structure on the stability of the financial system.
  • Likely future changes in the structure of the financial system and their implications for consumers of financial services and financial stability.

Submission:

Long abstracts or, preferably, complete manuscripts may be submitted no later September 9, 2024 on the website.

The results of the selection process will be sent in mid-October. Reasonable travel and accommodation expenses will be covered for the presenters of accepted papers. Please email Larry Wall with inquiries lwall7@gsu.edu.
