DBS-SWUFE Centre for Banking and Financial Stability

The DBS-SWUFE Centre for Banking and Financial Stability aims to promote and enhance Sino-Australian research in the areas of banking and finance.

We provide a platform for insightful discussions and debates through rigorous and policy-oriented research on stable financial systems, and effective monetary policies and regulatory mechanisms in Australia and China.

Research themes

Our research concentrates on four major themes that are important to both countries:

  • The risk-taking behaviour and effectiveness of regulatory mechanisms of financial intermediaries and in financial markets.
  • The risk assessment of credit risk, systemic risk, and liquidity risk in the financial sector.
  • The effectiveness of monetary policy through the financial sector and its impact on the real economy, including challenges posed by the increasing importance of shadow banking.
  • The evaluation and assessment of bank regulations that include the most recent Basel III/IV on capital requirements, liquidity requirements, other macro-prudential regulations on the aggregate risk of the financial sector, regulations in the operation of over-the-counter markets, and bank deposit guaranteed schemes.

Annual collaboration between Deakin University and SWUFE.
