The financial services business is an information technology business that operates in an environment
with substantial government involvement. The state of both technology and government intervention have evolved considerable since the crisis that began in 2007 with potentially large implications for the
future financial system. On the government involvement side, we saw first large scale government intervention to protect financial stability and subsequently a substantial tightening of prudential regulation
to reduce the risk of future crisis. On the technology side, we have seen an explosion of developments in a wide variety of areas including increased availability of data to firms, new tools for managing and
analyzing data, and new ways for financial services consumers to access and manage their data. These developments have the potential to change profoundly the conduct of financial intermediation. The
purpose of this conference is to examine how these and related developments are changing the financial system.
We invite academics, professionals, and regulators to submit papers for this conference. Long abstracts or, preferably, complete manuscripts may be submitted no later than August 5, 2019, on the full range of
issues associated with the financial system of the future. These issues include but are not limited to:
- How successful are FinTech firms at providing services once available only from traditional intermediaries including banks, broker/dealers, insurance companies and investment advisers?
- What will the banking system of the future look like? Given higher regulatory costs and the need to keep up with technology, is there still a place for small and medium size banks?
- How are changes in technology and regulation affecting the securities and derivatives markets?
- Have we gone too far with prudential regulation in some areas, putting traditional financial intermediaries in a position where they cannot compete?
- Conversely, in some areas have we failed to go far enough preventing intermediaries from taking excessive risk? Although the reasons may vary by geographic region, is the global financial
system vulnerable to another crisis whenever the next recession hits?
The results of the selection process will be sent by September 16, 2019. Reasonable travel and accommodation expenses will be covered for the presenters of accepted papers. Please contact Larry Wall with any further inquiries at firstname.lastname@example.org.
