 Financial Market Risk Premiums:
 Time Variation and Macroeconomic Links

July 21-22, 2005   Federal Reserve Board, Washington, D.C.

Risk premiums are a critical component of asset pricing relationships, summarizing the interaction among investor preferences, expected asset payoffs, and fundamental uncertainty. The Federal Reserve Board, as both a producer and consumer of risk premium measures, is an ideal facilitator of a wide-ranging discussion of the latest advances in this area. The conference program selected this year focuses on the equity risk premium, consumption risk, and market volatility.

Attendance at the conference is by invitation only.
