The Institute for Finance (IFF) at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland (FHNW) is kindly inviting you to participate in the 2nd International Conference on Credit Analysis and Risk Management – the Basel Workshop on Credit Risk 2013, held September 5 – 6, 2013 in Basel, Switzerland.
Conference Theme and Topics
The recent global financial crisis has exposed a weakness in credit analysis in the financial system. This conference is intended to expand the knowledge of credit analysis through discussion of both existing and new methods and models of credit analysis, credit risk management and related topics such as relationship lending.
The conference will include experts from both academia and industry talking on the subject: While a portion of the conference will be dedicated for keynote speeches, research papers on credit analysis are being invited for presentation and discussion.
Research Papers and abstracts are solicited on the following topics:
- Credit analysis and credit ratings
- Credit portfolio models and limitations
- Credit derivatives and structured finance
- The future of regulation
- Risk analysis and management
- Relationship lending
- Presentations of academic papers
- Speeches from financial practitioners
- Dr. Klaus Duellmann (German Central Bank)
- Prof. Dr. Markus Heusler (Risk Solution Network, RSN AG)
- Dr. Michael Loretan (Swiss Financial Markets Supervisory Authority, FINMA)
- Til Schuermann (Oliver Wyman)
- Dr. Michael Taylor (Financial Stability Board)
The registration fee of CHF 350 permits attendance and discussion at all workshops and events for the Thursday-Friday conference (September 5 – 6, 2013). No registration fee for academic presenters.
Submissions of both completed papers and extended abstracts (2 — 3 pages) are welcome. Accepted papers will be presented in half hour time slots, with a discussant allocated to each paper and time for discussion with the audience.
The papers presented at the 2011 conference in Rochester, Michigan, were of such high quality that both a special issue of the Journal of Credit Risk was devoted to it (published in March 2012) and a book summarizing the most important information discussed at the conference was published by Cambridge Scholars Publishing.
The papers selected for presentation at the 2013 conference are invited for submission to Kredit und Kapital, a German peer-reviewed journal that publishes both English and German papers in the context.
