Call for Papers

Since 2007, the financial crisis has triggered deep changes of various kinds. Central banks have experimented new monetary policies (low interest rates, quantitative easing, forward guidance...). The banking industry has had to develop new asset management strategies and to adjust its credit allocation practices in order to cope with a new environment characterized, in particular, by a prolonged period of very low risk-free returns. Alternatives and complements to commercial banking have continued their progress. Meanwhile, regulatory frameworks have been reshaped all around the world, with the introduction of new requirements or guidelines. All these changes have called for a substantial amount of research to improve the knowledge of the mechanisms at play during the crisis, to design adapted policy tools and to provide a better description of the new economic and financial environment.
