Systemic Financial Risk: Improving the Resilience of Global Markets

London, UK

May 14, 2008



At this point in time, policy makers from around the world were confronting a multidimensional crisis. On one end of the spectrum they had to deal with financial market dislocations in advanced economies. On the other side they were faced by emerging economies bearing challenges of overheating and dealing with strong capital inflows that could only be exacerbated by the easing of interest rates in the G7 countries. This situation served as the backdrop for this conference, hosted with the Bank of England under the G20 Presidency Brazil and during which participants laid out scenarios for possible exit routes from the turmoil and raised questions about reshaping the global financial system.
