The Indira Gandhi Institute of Development Research is organising the 15th Annual Conference on Money and Finance on December 18 and 19, 2013 at the Institute.The objective of the Conference is to bring together scholars who are engaged in quality research in money and finance, and to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas that seek to push the boundaries of existing research, particularly with respect to emerging economies like India.

Since 1998, IGIDR has been hosting the Money and Finance Conference annually given the importance that research on money and finance has gained in India after the reforms. Changes in the monetary regime and institutions, more openness, development of debt and equity markets, initiation of the derivative market, banking sector reforms, and several other measures have constantly raised new questions and policy issues. This, together with closer linkage to international research in a more open economy has rejuvenated research in the areas of monetary and financial economics in India.

As in past conferences papers on important aspects of money and finance, including banking and macroeconomics, corporate finance, stock markets and corporate governance will be presented at the conference.
