Professor Emilios Avgouleas organises high-profile conference and public panel on systemic risk

The conference and public panel on systemic risk took place at the Toronto Stock Exchange on 24 May 2018. The conference was organised by Professor Emilios Avgouleas of Edinburgh University and Professor Steven Schwarcz, Stanley Starr Chair of Corporate Law at Duke Law School and was strongly supported and sponsored by the Centre of International Governance Innovation a leading global think tank.

The purpose of the conference was to dissect the state of systemic risk regulation and the stability of global financial markets 10 yeas after the Global  Financial Crisis of 2008. The conference was in two parts.

The first part was a series of by invitation only roundtables featuring some of the world's top economists like John Geanakoplos (Yale) and Ant Admati (Stanford), and ECB and (Central) Bank of Canada Senior directors, and leading finance law professors (inc. S. Schwarcz (Duke), D. Arner (HKU), Anita Anand (Toronto), Kate judge (Columbia) etc.).  This was followed by a high profile public panel that took place in the TMX broadcast room of the Toronto Exchange Tower and was very well attended by members of the Canadian financial industry.
