Global Outlook and Monetary Policy Options

Presented by

Boris Vujčić, Governor, Croatian National Bank

A Risk-Based Taxonomy of Crypto Assets

It all started with Bitcoin in 2008. By now, there are thousands of crypto assets. What fundamental economic problem do crypto assets solve that existing assets or fiat currencies do not? Which assets will survive? What are the regulators up to?

Presented by

Dr. Andrei Kirilenko, Director of the Centre for Global Finance and Technology, Imperial College Business School

Adaptive Risk Management

Adaptive markets require adaptive risk management processes. - The adaptive moment turns risk management from a feedback control system into an integrated element of the investment decision process. It supports asset managers to develop or maintain a comparative advantage while staying compliant to regulatory requirements. Adapting the risk management techniques lead to a diminution of a correlation-based understanding of risk. It forces the decision maker to think in causalities.
