All of the Yale Program on Financial Stability's activities are directed at furthering understanding of the management of systemic risk in financial markets among a community of financial regulators and scholars.

The YPFS is currently focusing on four interrelated projects: 

The Systemic Risk Institute

The Systemic Risk Institute is an annual conference for a small group of economists employed in macroprudential roles in regulatory agencies and central banks. The Institute will expose participants to in-depth case studies and academic research while building an international community of scholar-regulators. 

Case Study Development

The Yale Program on Financial Stability (YPFS)  is producing a substantial collection of annotated primary sources on the interaction of firm behavior and financial regulation, with an emphasis on behavior before and during the global financial crisis. These case studies will form the backbone of resources for the Institute and be made freely available to the scholarly and regulatory community.

Annual Research Conference

YPFS is hosting its second annual conference on August 8, 2015 on the campus of Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut. The conference is held jointly with the Journal of Banking and Finance (JBF) on the topic of “Fighting a Financial Crisis” with papers from leading scholars. 

Joint Projects

YPFS is developing a series of joint projects with outside organizations on topics that bridge theory and practice.
