Seminar: "Why are rates and yields so low? Implications for monetary policy" with Lars Christensen

CEO of Markets & Money Advisory, Lars Christensen on implications for monetary policy


Monday, November 26, 2018 - 16:00 to 17:30

The world is undergoing significant demographic changes, with rapid population growth in Africa; ageing societies in Europe, North America and China; a substantial increase in life expectancy and new patterns of migration.  

These developments have had a major impact on the global economy, including in the Nordic countries, and have important implications for financial institutions and markets. Demographic changes already weigh heavily on interest rates, bond yields and asset prices and will continue to do so in the decades ahead.

Lars Christensen presents his preliminary result from his research on global bond yields and interest rates with a special focus on the implications for the conduct of monetary policy.
