SOVEREIGN BOND MARKETS
IN UNSTABLE TIMES
Dear Colleagues and Friends,
It is our pleasure to invite you to attend the 9th International Conference on Sovereign Bond Markets.
The conference this year focuses on Sovereign Bond Markets in Unstable Times, and it is hosted by the Carroll School of Management, Boston College. Co-organizers include the NYU Stern|Volatility and Risk Institute, the Leibniz Institute for Financial Research SAFE, the Imperial College|Brevan Howard Centre for Financial Analysis, the London Business School|AQR Asset Management Institute, the Bank of Canada, the Deutsche Bundesbank, and the European Central Bank.
Recent financial and real instability presented numerous unprecedented challenges to central banks and governments in both industrialized countries and emerging markets. As financial markets digest the latest round of QE unwinding, rampant inflation takes root in developed economies while the protracted war in Ukraine and new coronavirus waves in China both strain global supply chains and destabilize the pre-existing economic and geopolitical order. This unprecedented confluence of challenges will force policy makers to adopt new strategies, often untested, in order to fight inflation and ensure stable deficit funding while minimizing the potential distortions of their actions on both Wall Street and Main Street - from liquidity drainage to excessive economic contraction to volatility and financial instability.
The final program will include both submitted and invited papers.
The Conference will also feature panel discussions on the major outstanding issues in sovereign bond markets.
