Recap: Credit Markets Symposium 2013

By Kiran Krishnamurthy

More than 100 leaders in financial markets, the regulatory arena and academia attended the Richmond Fed’s seventh annual Credit Markets Symposium recently at the Bank’s Charlotte office.

Held April 18–19, CMS featured keynote speakers Sheila C. Bair, former chair of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, and Federal Reserve Board of Governors member Jeremy C. Stein.

Bair spoke about her time as FDIC chair during the financial crisis, as well as capital requirements and “too big to fail,” during the April 18 lunchtime keynote. Stern discussed liquidity regulation at the event’s closing. You can view videos of their speeches on the Richmond Fed YouTube channel. In addition, Lacker sat down with CNBC’s Steve Liesman at the symposium and discussed the economy and “too big to fail” in an interview.

This year’s symposium theme was “Finding the Right Balance.” Topics included capital requirements and their impact on credit availability, shadow banks as lenders, wholesale credit and more.
