Columbia University/Bank Policy Institute 2022 Research Conference
On Thursday, May 26, the Bank Policy Institute and Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs will host their annual conference on Bank Regulation and Supervision. The purpose of the conference is to bring together academics, market participants, and policymakers to discuss the latest research on the design and impacts of bank regulation.
This year’s conference will focus on two areas of significant risk and opportunity for banks: climate and digitalization and their implications for regulation and supervision. The conference includes three sessions and one moderated panel:
- Measuring physical risks of climate change.
- Impact of Regulation on Climate Risk
- Lending by Banks and Fintechs: soft vs hard information
- M&A panel: Fintechs, banks and competition
J. Nellie Liang, Undersecretary for Domestic Finance, U.S Department of the Treasury will deliver keynote remarks.
To encourage frank and open exchange, the conference will be conducted under Chatham House Rule. All attendees are welcome to use the information from the conference, but they should not attribute specific statements to individuals or institutions.
