5th International Conference on Sovereign Bond Markets

When:23 April 2018
  - 24 April 2018
Where:Bank of Canada, Ottawa

The conference this year focuses on Sovereign Debt and Financial Intermediation and is sponsored by the NYU Stern - Salomon Center for the Study of Financial Institutions. Co-sponsors include the University of Michigan - Mitsui Life Financial Research Center, Research Center SAFE at Goethe University Frankfurt, the National University of Singapore Business School Centre for Asset Management Research and Investments, the Waseda University and Bank of Canada.

In the aftermath of the financial crisis, the key role played by sovereign debt in facilitating financial intermediation has received increased attention from academics, debt managers, and policy makers in general. The use of government debt to obtain funding liquidity, and to help in the price discovery process, is essential to maintaining well-functioning financial markets. An understanding of the mechanisms underlying the interaction between sovereign debt and financial intermediation is required for debt managers to tailor financial market policies to achieving macroeconomic goals.

The final program will include both submitted and invited papers.

The conference will also feature a session by debt managers on current sovereign issuance practices in major economies, and a panel discussion on researchers' and practitioners' views on the major outstanding issues in sovereign bond markets.
