09/11/2017 The Future of Financial Intermediation: Opportunities and Challenges Posed by Regulatory Reforms and New Technologies, Frankfurt
Hosted By: Deutsche BundesbankSupported By: Halle Institute of Economic Research
The finalization of the Basel III package fundamentally changes the regulatory environment of financial intermediaries. Other rules to foster the soundness and stability of the financial system, such as the resolution framework or the OTC derivatives market reform, are about to be implemented, while the digitization of financial services provision changes the infrastructure of financial markets as well as consumer behavior. New market entrants, e.g. fintechs, non-financial firms, or service providers increase the competitive pressure in the banking industry, challenging traditional bank business models.

This conference seeks to attract high-quality theoretical and empirical contributions on the implications of these changes for both the banking industry and the real economy. Our aim is to facilitate a better understanding of the mechanisms at granular (micro) level in terms of how regulatory reforms and new technologies affect banks’ business models, their lending and trading behavior as well as the structure of the market for financial services. Possible topics include, but are not limited to

• the evolution of bank business models and risk-taking preferences in response to regulatory changes (e.g. Basel III, the resolution framework, or the OTC derivatives market reform)
• (unintended) side-effects of new regulation inside and outside the financial industry including the scope for regulatory arbitrage
• the challenges presented by the emergence of alternative forms of intermediation (e.g. crowdfunding/lending) on banks’ business and their relationship with clients
• the impact of regulation on competition among banks and other financial institutions
• the market entrance and exit of traditional financial institutions and fintechs
