2nd International Symposium for Finance, Banking and Insurance, ISFBI’22, France, December 2022

Covid-19 pandemic crisis has becoming a major worldwide economic crisis. Researchers and practitioners are now questioning the new world overwhelming their fields of research and industry practices. With a historical low rates levels in the western economies, an exponential unemployment, a negative price for oil barrel and a growing number of companies defaults in key industries, finance -as a disciplinary field- is pushed at its further burdens. Transformation of the whole banking and insurance industry is getting accelerated by the double effect of this unexpected crisis and the growing competition of FinTechs and BigTechs. Central Banks are also in a crossroad: is there a space to classical monetary policy when even money creation is challenged by cryptocurrencies?


2nd ISFBI-International Symposium for Finance, Banking and Insurance is also an opportunity to open doors to new challenging fields insufficiently covered by top financial journals and conferences like technological innovations and smart applications in financial Economics, various alternative business models in finance, Digitalization, and the increasing co-influence between finance, accounting and risk management. The last ambition behind ISFBI is to fill the gap between finance -as a core discipline- and other related expertise especially banking and insurance. These two last fields developed their own ecosystem of competencies and know-how and are not sufficiently integrated in the core finance journals and conferences.

ISFBI 2nd edition, is committed to be a core finance interdisciplinary event, open to academia and practitioners as well, to deal with the unprecedented challenges of our times.
