The Center for Financial Studies (CFS) invites the submission of theoretical, empirical and policy oriented papers on risk transfer between corporations, (re-)insurers, banks, and markets.
Its two objectives are 1) to present the state of the art of international research on the economics of risk transfer, in particular on the importance of alternative methods of risk transfer, implications for systemic stability and policy implications, and 2) to provide a forum in which industry experts, policymakers, and researchers can exchange their views.
TOPICS may include:
Securitization: do banks and insurers benefit? What are the differences?
Do corporations need new risk transfer solutions?
Do ART products and securitization improve the risk allocation?
The influence of taxes, regulation, and accounting on product development and success
Mark to market accounting and risk transfer
