Bolstering Financial Intermediaries to Enhance Capital Flows (Invite only)
Tuesday, May 2, 2017 / 3:45 pm - 4:45 pm

William Lee, Chief Economist, Milken Institute

Cross-border flows are crucial in enabling the diversification of capital allocation. Financial intermediaries, such as banks and asset managers, are the linchpins for facilitating such flows. At this private session, our panel will discuss policies that enhance financial stability by catalyzing and enabling the efficient allocation of capital through cross-border flows. Specifically, we'll explore:

  • The macroeconomic consequences of divergent monetary policies on exchange rate stability
  • The impact of disparate macroprudential/regulatory policies on the health of banks and other key institutions
  • The interplay between cross-border flows and geopolitical risk stirred by rising nationalism, Brexit, the European elections, and other causes
