Columbia University, the Office of Financial Research and the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond

The Office of Financial Research is hosting on Sept. 9th a virtual conference on climate-related risks and financial stability. The event will be open to the public. The registration link can be found below.

Climate financial risk is an area of increasing concern. However, our understanding of the financial system’s exposure to climate-sensitive assets remains limited. This is also the case regarding the effects of regulatory changes stemming from policies that confront climate-related issues.

The conference will convene experts on climate finance issues to present research and hold panel discussions to provide insights into a broad spectrum of climate finance topics, including macro-prudential issues, asset valuations, credit markets, stress testing, and financial system externalities.
