SNS, Jakobsbergsgatan 18, Stockholm

How do policy makers around the world plan to regulate cryptocurrencies? Can cryptocurrencies be used to avoid financial sanctions? Welcome to SNS/SHoF Finance Panel where MIT Professor Antoinette Schoar discusses the emerging risks and promises of a wider adoption of these technologies, together with Martin Flodén, Deputy Governor of the Riksbank, and Kristian Gårder, Co-Head of Equities at SEB.

Cryptocurrencies have rapidly grown in terms of volume and sparked much debate. They are viewed both as a means of payment and as assets to invest in. However, so far, they are largely unregulated and policy makers now push for greater market supervision.

Antoinette Schoar is Professor of Finance at the MIT Sloan School of Management. She is a well-known thought leader in the fields of blockchain and cryptocurrencies. Her current research focuses on the areas of consumer finance, entrepreneurial finance, and new financial technologies.

The seminar is part of The Finance Panel, a meeting forum hosted by SNS and the Swedish House of Finance (SHoF) at the Stockholm School of Economics, Sweden’s national research center for financial economics.
