The Financial Services Indices, Liquidity and Economic Activity Conference will be jointly hosted by the University of Birmingham’s Financial Resilience Research Centre and the Bank of England.

The conference will take place in the prestigious Bank of England Headquarters in London and will bring together world leaders in the area of finance.

In contemporary economies, liquidity plays a pivotal role in financial markets, the baking sector and the economy as a whole. Since the 2008-9 financial crisis, it has become increasingly necessary to understand the creation, dissemination, measurement and management of liquidity. The conference seeks to understand and assess the macroeconomics implications of liquidity, the liquidity creation process and the impacts of liquidity on financial markets and economic activity.

  • Lawrence Goodman, President, Centre for Financial Stability Inc., USA
