CIFR Systemic Risk Symposium

CIFR Inaugural Symposium on Systemic Risk

On 8 August 2013, finance sector leaders gathered to discuss the progress of six CIFR-funded research projects focused on systemic risk, including the Macquarie University Early-Warning Systems and Managing Systemic Risks project. The first of a series, the Symposium was designed to give researchers the opportunity to discuss their projects with an audience of academic peers, finance industry executives and financial sector regulators.

The event received strong support with over 100 people participating, providing a powerful demonstration of CIFR’s increasingly important position in financial markets, policy formulation and research.

Guests were welcomed by Kylie Hargreaves, Acting Deputy Director General, NSW Trade & Investment. CIFR Chairman Peter Mason then introduced the Symposium by reinforcing the importance of the CIFR projects currently being undertaken. This was followed by CIFR CEO David Gallagher foreshadowing CIFR’s new approach to commissioning research projects.
