The annual Paul Woolley Centre Conference provides an excellent opportunity to disseminate research and stimulate new ideas by bringing together leading researchers working on the broad themes of contracts and organisational structure, market frictions and asset prices, allocative efficiency and the macro-economy, and policy implications.
This year’s conference will be held in collaboration with the Bank for International Settlements (BIS). There will be a “BIS session” on Liquidity and Market Functioning, which will explore questions such as (a) how do market and funding liquidity interact, (b) whether there are anomalies that may impair the proper functioning of markets and pose risks to financial stability, and (c) what drives the risk taking of institutional investors. The BIS session will explore these questions, which intersect with the Centre’s research agenda, with special emphasis on the policy angles.
