Professor Dimitrios Tsomocos of Saїd Business School, University of Oxford will deliver his lecture, titled ‘Covid 19 & Financial system challenges around the world’, to ICEF Master of Financial Economics students.

Sponsoring Dimitrios’s speech is Alexander Zayonts, member of the HSE Board of Trustees for ICEF Endowment Fund, founder and CEO at HOFF.

Dimitrios Tsomocos has been delivering Financial Economics lectures to ICEF master’s students for ten years now.

This year, Dimitrios’s course on financial economics will be complemented with the lecture ‘Covid 19 & Financial system challenges around the world’. For the global financial system, the pandemic has become the first serious test after the G20 agreement and the 2008 crisis. The situation has taught financial regulators some important lessons. The pandemic is still ongoing, but its economic and financial consequences are significantly mitigated by daring political actions in the midst of instability and imbalance of some financial sectors. In his lecture, Dimitrios will summarize the current crisis analytics, state the current challenges and offer the forecasts.

Professor Tsomocos holds a BA, MA, MPhil and a PhD (1996) from Yale University. His main areas of expertise at Saїd Business School include monetary policy, financial stability analysis and macroprudential regulation. Dimitrios Tsomocos co-developed the Goodhart-Tsomocos model of financial fragility, which has been calibrated and is being used by central banks in more than ten countries including Russia.

Dimitrios’s research has had a substantial impact on economic policy around the world. In particular, he analyses issues of contagion, financial fragility, interbank linkages and the impact of the Basel Accord and financial regulation in the macroeconomy, using a General Equilibrium model with incomplete asset markets, money and endogenous default. He is working towards designing a new paradigm of monetary policy, financial stability analysis and macroprudential regulation. Alongside his role at the School, Dimitrios is a Senior Research Associate in the Financial Markets Group at the London School of Economics.

Dimitrios publishes frequently in leading journals – Journal of Mathematical Economics, Economic Theory, Journal of Money, Credit and Banking, Journal of Financial Stability, Annals of Finance, International Journal of Central Banking, and Journal of Economics.
