The next financial crisis (Fully Booked)
Wed 20 Mar 19 at Farmers & Fletchers, London

The post Bretton Woods (1971-) global financial system has remained vulnerable to financial crises, with their frequency being higher in this period than across all previous financial history. 

The current financial system allows for huge operations/stimulus to overcome any crisis/shock. Although the positive impact this has on nominal prices cannot be underestimated, by continually using stimulus to deal with crises and not letting the creative destruction take over, a subsequent crisis becomes more likely by passing the problem along to some other part of the global financial system and usually in bigger size.

Are we long overdue for another financial crisis?

In this event, hosted by the Performance & Risk Special Interest Group, Jim Reid will talk you through a number of areas of the global financial system that some might consider to be at extreme levels, attempting to shed light on potential sources of the next Financial Crisis. Among others, these include valuations in many asset classes, the unique size of central bank balance sheets, sky high debt levels, ultra-low interest rates and even the level of potentially game-changing populist political support around the globe.
