Financial Stability Conference in Berlin, October 18

I would like to draw your attention to a conference about financial regulation taking place in Berlin on October 18, the „Financial Stability Conference“. It is organised by the „Financial Risk and Stability Network“.  Suffice it to say, that speakers and participants are just about the top tier of European financial policymakers and topics discussed are highly relevant to the future of financial regulation in the Eurozone and in a wider context. Also, there is no participation fee.
