Financial Systems: Diversity, Stability and Sustainable Development

Time: August 24 and 25, 2017
Place: HEC Montréal

The International Research Centre on Cooperative Finance (IRCCF) of the Alphonse and Dorimène Desjardins International Institute for Cooperative at HEC Montreal and the University of Victoria’s Gustavson School of Business and the Department of Economics are pleased to present the edition 2017 of the International Workshop on Financial System Architecture and Stability (IWFSAS).

IWFSAS aims at providing a forum for academic researchers and policy makers to discuss issues related to the structure and design of financial systems and their impact on growth and financial stability. While the specific theme may vary from year to year, the overall objective of this annual workshop is to facilitate discussions of high-quality policy-relevant research papers that inform our understanding of how various financial sector policies can affect the stability of the financial system and the overall economy, both nationally and globally.

The IWFSAS 2017 is dedicated to discussing diversity, stability and sustainable development in financial systems.

The keynote speaker is Professor Anjan V. Thakor, John E. Simon Professor of Finance, Olin Business School, Washington University in St Louis.

We look forward to seeing you in August!
