Three voices on the conference on Credit Markets after the Crisis
Luc Laeven from ECB, professor Amar Bhidé and Martin Flodén from Riksbanken were some of the speakers at the Swedish House of Finance-conference on Credit Markets after the Crisis. But what were the major take-aways for the participants from the industry? We asked three of them.
“I found it particularly interesting to listen to Luc Laeven from ECB and get the official story from ECB. I thought the regulators sounded slightly too complacent though.”

“It’s the first time I’m visiting one of your events, and for me the content was spot on. It was interesting to hear quite different angles. I work in a bank and we fight and adapt to regulations and increased capital requirements. It’s a market where a lot of things are happening, and it’s hard to find quick fixes.”
Elisabeth Adebäck, Senior Credit Analyst, Nordea
“The most interesting thing was the discussion about liquidity and corporate bonds – that sort of topics are very interesting to us at Nasdaq. And since I have a background from the Riksbank, I also find monetary policy very interesting. One discussion that I was particularly happy to follow was that on the connection between liquidity and how money is created in the banking system. That’s something I’ve spent a lot of time studying myself.”
