4th European Conference on Banking and the Economy (ECOBATE 2016)
The primary objective of the European Conference on Banking and the Economy (ECOBATE) is to bring together eminent researchers, policy-makers and industry leaders from all over the world, including from regulators, national and local authorities and think tanks, to discuss and exchange ideas on current issues in banking, finance, financial markets, central banking, economics, financial regulation, asset management, risk management, new financial services and policy.
ECOBATE aims to provide a platform for academics and research students, as well as policy makers and practitioners to present and discuss major critical banking challenges and issues. Attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions and engage with leading thinkers and policy-makers.
Research papers on banking, finance, monetary economics, monetary policy, macroprudential policy, asset management are mainly presented in the morning and early afternoon parallel sessions. Researchers presenting papers are required to obtain a full day registration, which includes lunch and refreshments.
