Dear Colleagues and Friends,

It is our pleasure to invite you to attend the 10th International Conference on Credit Risk Evaluation Designed for Institutional Targeting in finance.

GRETA Associati (Venice, Italy), Intesa Sanpaolo (Milan, Italy), European Investment Bank (Luxembourg) and the AXA Chair on Large Risks in Insurance are co-sponsors of the Conference to be held in Venice on September 29 - 30, 2011.

The objective of the Conference is to bring together academics, practitioners and PhD students working in the area of risk management. The conference will provide an opportunity for participants engaged in research at the forefront of this area to discuss both the causes and implications of recent events in financial markets and may, in turn, suggest fruitful directions for future research.

The Conference is organised under the auspices of the Department of Economics of the University Ca’ Foscari of Venice, ABI - Italian Banking Association and ANIA - Associazione Nazionale fra le Imprese Assicuratrici.

The organizers encourage submissions of papers on any topic within the overall theme of the conference and in the following areas in particular:

  • Systemic risk:  How to measure it, how to limit it;
  • Banking and insurance:  Capital requirements and risk management after the crisis;
  • Financial information: the role of ratings agencies, Pillar 3 (Basel III and Solvency II), stress testing.

The final program will include both submitted and invited papers. Acceptances received from invited speakers include Peter M. DeMarzo (Stanford University) and Luigi Zingales (Chicago Booth). The Conference will also feature a panel discussion on researchers' and practitioners' views of the major outstanding problems.
