Emerging Risks

Financial Intelligence Today, risks and vulnerabilities are more complex than ever. Candid and unbiased assessment from independent experts across financial markets, macroeconomics, and geopolitics is essential to optimize private sector performance and public policy.

The Center for Financial Stability runs a Vulnerabilities Working Group (VWG), co-chaired by David Martin and Lawrence Goodman, to identify financial risks likely to present over the next 3 to 24 months.
