3rd BIS-CGFS workshop on "Research on global financial stability: the use of BIS international banking and financial statistics"

On 7 May 2016 the BIS and the Committee on the Global Financial System (CGFS) jointly hosted the third workshop on research on global financial stability. The workshop focused on empirical work related to international banking and financial markets, with emphasis on analysis based in whole or in part on the international banking, debt securities and derivatives statistics compiled by the BIS on behalf of the CGFS. The workshop was intended to promote the use of these statistics, including the newly enhanced banking statistics, among central bankers, analysts and academics.
