8th Annual Columbia/BPI Conference


The eighth annual Conference on Bank Regulation, co-hosted by Columbia University School of International and Public Affairs and the Bank Policy Institute, took place on February 29, 2024. Each year, the conference brings together academics, regulators, and practitioners to discuss the latest research on banking and bank regulation. This year’s overarching theme was bank regulation and the resilience of the banking sector, especially in light of the failures of several regional banks last spring. Topics discussed included vulnerabilities to runs, bail-in debt, the transmission of monetary policy through banks’ securities portfolios and the interaction with banking regulation, and the future structure of the banking industry.
