Vanderbilt University’s Financial Markets Research Center will mark its 25th annual Spring Conference with an examination of the financial markets over the past 25 years. Keynote speakers include Donald Kohn, former vice chairman of the U.S. Federal Reserve Board, and Pat Parkinson, who previously oversaw the supervision and regulation division of the Federal Reserve Board.
Both speakers will discuss changes in financial regulations over the past quarter century and their effects on global markets. Other conference speakers will tackle questions such as have financial markets become more efficient and stable or are markets becoming more volatile and costly? And how and to what extent have the issues studied by finance researchers changed in the last 25 years?
The event is May 3-4 at Vanderbilt Owen Graduate School of Management. It is closed to
the public, but open to the media. Media planning to attend should contact Amy Wolf in Vanderbilt News and Communications for credentials.
For the past 25 years, the FMRC, a renowned research center housed within the Vanderbilt Owen Graduate School of Management, has sought to bring together academic researchers, government regulators, and industry practitioners to examine pressing issues within financial markets.
