Agency Problems and Conflicts of Interest in Financial Intermediaries
|December 3-4, 2004|
A conference jointly sponsored by the Federal Reserve Bank
of New York, the Journal of Financial Economics (JFE),
and the Dice Center for Research in Financial Economics
of Ohio State University.
This conference aims to promote a better understanding of
the economic relevance of conflicts of interest in financial
intermediaries by examining: whether the conflicts were particularly
worse at the end of the 1990s; how conflicts are managed
within financial institutions; how contracting, legal, and
reputation mechanisms affect conflicts; and the role of regulatory
authorities and regulations in overseeing conflicts.
