CAFIN and UC Investments Speaker Series Financial Risks, Innovation and Inclusion in a Post-COVID World
Real-Time Real Economic Activity: Exiting the Great Recession and Entering the Pandemic Recession, with Frank Diebold
Professor Social Sciences, Professor of Economics, Finance, and Statistics, University of Pennsylvania

The economic crisis associated with COVID-19 pandemic has altered all aspects of our lives. In a new CAFIN speaker series, we will focus on financial challenges and developments. Among the questions that are relevant are: What are the risks to the global financial system in the medium to long run? Is the banking system robust enough? What kinds of future policy interventions might be necessary? What changes to payment systems and other financial innovations have been accelerated by the crisis? How do contagion control policies affect populations that are traditionally underserved by the financial sector? Will financial inclusion be more difficult to achieve after the pandemic?
