Using Macroprudential Policies to reduce the risk of financial crises

Research on the use of cointegration in assessing tools’ effectiveness has influenced the thinking and approach to research by Norges Bank, the Norwegian Central Bank.

The development of a macroprudential sector for the National Institute Global Econometric Model (NiGEM) at the National Institute of Economic and Social Research (NIESR) has influenced macroeconomic and monetary policy for a range of global users including central banks and international organisations such as the European Central Bank and OECD.

Work on concentration and distribution measures of key macroprudential indicator variables for the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in 2017 has helped them to gain approval to expand the list of financial soundness indicators to cover such measures.
