Center for Financial Frictions

Past Practitioner Seminars

FRIC Practitioner Seminars aim to help finance researchers and other practitioners understand the institutional setting of financial markets, and to keep up with financial innovation and changes in the regulatory environment.

Practitioner Seminars

FRIC Practitioner Seminars feature practitioners from financial institutions, central banks, regulatory authorities, asset management firms and other central players in the finance industry. Occasionally, the seminar also features academics speaking on current issues faced by the industry.

The purpose of the seminars is to help finance researchers understand the institutional setting of financial markets, and to keep up with financial innovation and changes in the regulatory environment.

Arguably, it was the failure to understand the plumbing of the financial system rather than a lack of theoretical tools that prevented most academics from seeing the financial crisis coming. The Practitioner Seminars series aims to fill this gap.

Ultimately, the FRIC Practitioner Seminars should stimulate new research into the role of financial frictions that will help answering concrete and pressing questions in financial markets.
