FINANCIAL RISK AND STABILITY NETWORK
independent – critical – constructive

Financial Risk and Stability Network is an independent non-profit organisation based in Berlin focusing on regulation, financial stability, institutional frameworks and financial sector reforms in the EU. It contributes to the provision of information, research and views exchange via its activities and events.

The organisation is a recognised non-profit limited company, legally named FRS Financial Risk and Stability gGmbH, ruled by German law. It is registered, tax-exempted and acting in the notion of public interest. FRS is scientific based and essentially policy oriented. It presents a valuable, useful platform to bridge academic and policymaking expertise, involving regulatory authorities, industry, institutions and civil society.
Independence, transparency as well as a critical and constructive perspective are core principles of the non-profit organisation. FRS stimulates research and opinion making, engages in education, advances the policy debate, and brings together the concerned stakeholders in open exchange and debate formats.
