Présentation du colloque  

The global financial crisis of 2007-2009 has highlighted the vulnerability of the banking system to adverse shocks, and the subsequent sovereign debt crisis in the Euro area has further weakened the European banks. The widespread distress and bankruptcies lead monetary and banking regulatory authorities to implement a new set of stabilization policies. Their effects are expected to limit considerably the risk-taking of banking institutions, and therefore banking systemic risk. In spite of some tangible success in developed countries, many banks are still incentivised to take on more risk, either to restore their pre-crisis profits or to honour their commitments to stockholders in terms of returns. Have unconventional monetary policies, through their massive injection of liquidity into the banking markets of developed countries, fuelled this risk-taking trend for commercial banks? How does the FED’s intention to suppress its Quantitative Easing monetary policy might impact the risk-taking of banks? Alongside the effect of macro-stabilisation policies on the banks’ behaviour, the Basel 3 prudential regulation notably strengthens the capital requirements of banking institutions, and adds new liquidity requirements, aiming to reduce their risk-taking. But what is its real efficiency? Will these new macro-stabilisation policies and prudential regulation effectively and sustainably reduce both bank risk-taking and systemic risk, or will they merely defer the next crisis? The Larefi-Bordeaux university workshop aims to provide answers to these questions, as well as to others concerning the effects of macro-stabilisation policies on bank risk-taking.
