The Future of Financial Intermediation: Opportunities and Challenges Posed by Regulatory Reforms and New Technologies

Eltville, near Frankfurt/Main
9-10 November, 2017

The finalisation 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 infrastucture of financial markets as well as consumer behaviour. 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.
