Speaker(s): 

Maturity mismatch and debt rollover risk played an important role in amplifying the Global Financial Crisis. How do banks respond to reduction of rollover risk induced by unconventional monetary policy? What are the consequences for bank lending to the real economy? Jasova’s research provides new evidence on these important policy questions.
