9th Annual SKBI Conference 2019 on “Sustainable Finance”
7 – 8 November 2019
“Sustainable Finance” is one of the emerging research areas that we now focus on at the Sim Kee Boon Institute for Financial Economics (SKBI) and is also the title of our 9th Annual SKBI Conference. This two-day event, hosted in partnership with the TBLI Group of the Netherlands, will occur on 7-8 November 2019. The conference is intended for practitioners, policymakers, and academics. Along with plenary session keynote speeches and panels, there will be four separate sessions of parallel workshops to allow for smaller-group interactions.
Macroeconomic Stabilization in the Digital Age
16 – 17 October 2019
Over the past decade, the global financial crisis and the rise of the digital economy have created new challenges for the management of the economy. During this period, emerging economies have had to deal with large and volatile capital flows. While such capital flows can have substantial benefits for economies in terms of growth and development, they can also pose substantial risks if not properly managed. Achieving macroeconomic stability can be fraught with difficulty when capital inflows lead to greater volatility of domestic consumption, currency and maturity mismatches, as well as boom/bust cycles in asset prices. New approaches to capital flow management and improving resilience to capital flow shocks are thus more important than ever.
In conjunction with these developments, the onset and growth of fintech has implications for cross-border capital flows. Innovations related to payments systems, maturity transformation, and the allocation of capital can create challenges for macroeconomic stabilization to the extent that they disrupt the efficacy of policy tools used to manage the economy.
Selected papers were featured at the conference hosted at the Sim Kee Boon Institute at the Singapore Management University in Singapore on 16-17 October 2019.
Asia Pacific Financial Education Institute
16 - 17 September 2019
The Asia Pacific Financial Education Institute (APFEI) is a forum for presentation and discussion of financial education research. For this event, SKBI has partnered with the world's leading center for financial literacy research and policy, the Global Financial Literacy Excellence Center (GFLEC). Modelled after the “Cherry Blossom Financial Education Institute” held annually in Washington, DC, the APFEI’s goal is to promote excellent work in this field, foster research that can inform policy, and identify effective financial education programs, with a particular emphasis on Asia.
