NYU University Volatility & Risk Institute

The IGF and New York University (NYU) Volatility and Risk Institute collaborate and work closely on issues affecting: 

  • Global and regional financial stability 
  • Financial institutions 
  • Measuring systemic risk 

Nobel Laureate Professor Robert Engle is the Co- Director of the Volatility and Risk Institute at NYU, and IGF Senior Fellow. 

The IGF and the Volatility Institute at NYU are refining the methodology and techniques for measuring systemic risk of banks. NYU’s V-Lab at the Volatility Institute provides live weekly data on the systemic risk of banks around the world. This data includes major banks from the US, Europe, Asia and Australia.  

This live data is extremely valuable to the finance industry and policymakers, acting as early warnings that capture the financial risk of global, regional and national banking systems.
