The late George G. Kaufman, PhD, was one of the world's leading experts on banking, a prolific researcher, and the highly regarded John F. Smith Professor of Economics and Finance at Loyola University Chicago's Quinlan School of Business. Dr. Kaufman established the center and was its director for more than 20 years. In August, the center was renamed in Dr. Kaufman's honor thanks to a seven-figure gift from a benefactor.

Research presentations will cover issues associated with bank capital regulation, the regulatory tool of choice for risk management purposes; the extent of "bank uniqueness" in the financial services industry and the implications for market discipline, moral hazard, and industry competition; and the use of supervisory and rule-making tools to achieve specific goals in the financial services industry.

The George G. Kaufman Center for Financial and Policy Studies evaluates and contributes to the debate concerning policy issues associated with the financial services industry. The center honors the role of Professor Kaufman in financial sector policy research over the past 50 years, and continues his legacy by encouraging a critical review of public policy options going forward.
