Financial Institutions and Financial Stability
A UC Davis Graduate School of Management Finance Conference

“Financial Institutions and Financial Stability” is the fourth annual conference hosted by the School’s finance group. Organized by Professor Robert Marquez, the invitation-only forum brings together top researchers to present their latest insights on regulatory reform for financial intermediaries, the past and future role of capital for banks, crisis resolution, and liquidity provision by financial institutions. Speakers from Duke University, New York University, the University of Washington, the International Monetary Fund, and the Federal Reserve Bank will share insights from their latest research, with topics ranging from the response of banks to aid provided to them by the government, to the role capital plays at financial intermediaries, among others.
