The global financial landscape has changed significantly over the past decade. In the future, several trends will transform financial systems still further. Population aging, climate change, increasing credit intermediation through nonfinancial firms, and changes in global economic integration will continue to shape the future of finance. What would this future look like? How can policymakers and financial institutions best deal with these changes and help improve economic outcomes while adequately safeguarding the stability of the financial system? The panelists will discuss the challenges and opportunities that policymakers and financial institutions would face during the transformation of finance going forward.
