  • Mr Jesper Berg, Director General Danish Financial Supervisory Authority
  • Mr Guan Jianzhong, Chairman and President of Dagong Global Credit Rating

Around 400 international faculty members, representatives from banks and industry, and  research students from Nottingham's campuses in the UK, China and Malaysia will meet on 31 August-2 September, 2017 at the Ningbo Marriott Hotel, China.

This event is organised under the auspices of the International Finance and Banking Society (IFABS) Asia Chapter, in collaboration with University of Nottingham Ningbo and New York University (NYU) Shanghai. The conference has received great support from Tsinghua University, the Chinese government, industry and prominent universities in China.

Financial innovation, stability and sustainable growth

The purpose of this conference is to bring together top finance researchers around the world to exchange new ideas about investigating the impact of financial innovations on the traditional financial sector, which demands new models and empirical findings in asset pricing, corporate finance, portfolio strategies, risk management, and policy effects.

In addition to the papers directly related to the conference theme, the conference committee would like to invite submission of papers relating to all aspects of banking and finance.
