2020: Spring workshop (Chania, 5 June 2020)


FINEST workshops are small meetings with an in-depth discussion (from top scholars) of a limited number of high-quality papers with the aim of fostering discussion among academics, policymakers, and practitioners about the evolving challenges facing banks.

In the 2020 spring workshop, we expect to accept up to seven full papers for presentation and a set of research proposals (in the “early idea” session).

We invite submission of papers in all areas related to financial intermediation, including bank risk taking, regulation, supervision, financial stability, resolution mechanisms, ownership structure and governance issues, market structure and competition, and FinTech.
