Financing the Global Economy: How Can Traditional and Non-Traditional Sources Be Integrated?

Report for latest session of the Salzburg Global Forum on Finance in a Changing World now online

The report of this year’s session of the Salzburg Global Forum on Finance in a Changing World is now available online to read, download and share.

Since 2011, Salzburg Global Seminar has held a series of high-level programs focusing on issues critical to the future of financial markets and global economic growth and stability. The 2016 session of the Salzburg Global Forum on Finance in a Changing World brought together over fifty bankers, policymakers, regulators and supervisors, representatives of financial services firms and alternative financial intermediaries, consultants and academics from across the globe for three intensive days to discuss: Financing the Global Economy: How Can Traditional and Non-Traditional Sources Be Integrated? 

The key question governing deliberations of the three-day session at Schloss Leopoldskron was how to sustainably finance the global economy and growth using all available channels such as banks, market-based finance, fintech, and non-bank challengers, as well as policy banks, in a way which enhances the overall quality of finance while preserving stability. 

The report, written by Silken Finken, professor of International Management at International School of Management (ISM) in Munich, Germany, summarizes discussions on a variety of topics, including:

  • Banks and Markets: Debt, Equity and Potential for the Economy
  • Capital Markets Across the Globe: Integration or Fragmentation?
  • Building Resilient and Effective Market-based Finance
  • Emerging Risks and Vulnerabilities: Are We Worrying About the Same Things?
  • Digital Disruption in Capital Markets
  • The Role of Fintech in Providing Financing for the Economy 
  • The Role of Policy Banks in Providing Reliable Financing to the Economy

Also included are reports of the working groups, which considered such questions as "How can we develop the right infrastructure that supports market-based finance?" and "What are the possible scenarios for the evolution of the markets?".
