15th Annual Paul Woolley Centre Conference

"Segmented Markets and Macroeconomics"

Date: 8-9th June 2023   Venue: London School of Economics, in person
Organisers: Dmitry Mukhin (LSE), Walker Ray (LSE) and Dimitri Vayanos (LSE)


Research at the Paul Woolley Centre aims to understand capital markets' workings and the social efficiency of allocations these markets achieve. The research departs from the Arrow-Debreu view of frictionless markets and emphasises the role of financial intermediaries (e.g. investment banks, mutual, hedge, and pension funds) in influencing prices and allocations.

The Centre holds a conference each year based on these broad themes to bring together researchers working on such questions, disseminate their research, and stimulate the development of new ideas.

This year's edition of the conference is joint with the LSE Centre for Macroeconomics. The central topic is the segmentation of asset markets and its implications for the term structure of interest rates, for exchange rates and UIP/CIP, and for monetary policy and financial stability.
