Dear Colleagues and Friends,

It is our pleasure to invite you to attend the 13th International Conference on Credit Risk Evaluation Designed for Institutional Targeting in finance.

The objective of the Conference is to bring together academics, practitioners and PhD students working in the area of risk management. The conference this year focuses on The New Financial Regulatory System: Challenges and Consequences for the Financial Sector and 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 the thirteenth of a series dedicated to various aspects of credit risk.

The co-sponsors of the Conference are GRETA Associati (Venice, Italy), Research Center SAFE at Goethe University Frankfurt (Frankfurt, Germany), Intesa Sanpaolo (Milan, Italy) and SYRTO - SYstemic Risk TOmography, a project funded by the European Union under the 7th Framework Programme (FP7-SSH/2007-2013) Grant Agreement n° 320270.
