Conférence Banque de France - Toulouse School of Economics “Securitisation: the way forward?”

The Banque de France and Toulouse School of Economics (TSE) will organise a one day conference on “Securitisation: the way forward?”. This joint conference will take place in Paris on October 23, 2015.

The 2007 U.S. subprime crisis and the global financial meltdown that followed exposed mportant shortcomings in the functioning of significant segments of the securitisation market and in the regulatory treatment of banks’ exposures to asset-backed securities. To address these shortcomings, minimum risk retention requirements by originators have been introduced both in the U.S. and in Europe, and revisions to the international Basel securitisation framework have been proposed. Other policy initiatives, supported by prominent central banks, are currently underway to promote simple and transparent forms of securitisation, with the view that well-functioning securitisation still has an important role to play—especially in Europe—a source of stable long-term funding for the economy. The conference aims to discuss incentive problems arising in different forms of securitisation, its consequence for banks and other economic actors and the public interventions to address these issues.
