Seminar details

This is the first seminar in a four seminar series.

The series will involve leading experts presenting papers on two key themes which are absolutely central in financial modelling: distributional assumptions and efficiency. The conference series will tie these two key themes to the events of the 2008 financial crisis. It will attempt to shed light on how financial modelling can possibly be re-interpreted in light of the 2008 crisis.

This seminar is organised by Professor Molyneux (co-investigator), Bangor University.

Confirmed key note speakers are:

  • Professor Deakin, Cambridge University - Legal and Regulatory origins of the crisis
  • Professor Steven Ongena, Tilburg University, Netherlands - "A century of firm - bank relationships: did banking sector deregulation spur firms to add banks and borrow more?"
  • Professor Rousseau, Vanderbilt University, USA - The ‘new’ financial history and the US experience
  • Dr Rhiannon Sowerbutts, Bank of England - "Subsidies, a lack of market discipline and too important to fail"
  • Professor Ian Tonks, University of Bath - "Executive pay-performance sensitivities: did bankers' bonuses cause the crisis?"
  • Professor Molyneux, Bangor University - Risks in European Banking
