About the Yale Program on Financial Stability

The Yale Program on Financial Stability's (YPFS) mission to create, disseminate, and preserve knowledge about financial crises. 

Finding Stability Together

board ypfs

At its core, the threat systemic risk poses to our global economy is consistent with the model of a classic public goods problem. The YPFS contributes to the solution of this problem by supporting the world’s financial authorities in refining proven and unified crisis management tools and interventions strategies, by cultivating greater awareness of systemic risk globally through the education of future stewards of macroprudential policy and financial regulatory supervision.

Expanding the Policy Toolkit


The YPFS commits to fortifying the application of macroprudential policy tools in response to disruptions caused by systemic risk, and seeks to alleviate the pressures inherent in financial crisis management, through the provision of training, analytical tools, and resources for the global community of central banks and other financial regulatory professionals.
