With the international financial crisis of 2007-09, a new era for thinking about financial regulation emerged that transformed our understanding of risk-management and financial stability. The subsequent Eurozone crisis reinforced the view that the European financial system remains vulnerable if the single market is being governed by heterogeneous regulatory requirement. Our 3rd annual conference hosted jointly with Oliver Wyman aims to advance our understanding of how well the new EU regulatory efforts contribute to stable and sustained growth in Europe.
