300 years of sense making
It is more than 300 years ago that the very first international financial crisis emerged: the South Sea Bubble of 1720 that raged through Europe and the world. This crisis generated a wide public debate about the value and threats of the financial sector and the relationship between finance and society thus giving a strong impulse to a long tradition of sense making, i.e. of reflection on the public value of the financial sector. On 12 March 2021 we will further reflect on the dynamic relationship between finance and society.
Join a discussion between different stakeholders
We invite you to join stakeholders from the financial sector, historians of finance, journalists and policy makers to explore pressing questions about the position of the financial sector in society - in the past and the present. The event will include keynote speeches and panel discussions on issues such as the history and nature of trust in the financial sector, the challenges of innovation and internationalization, transparency and accountability, and the need to safeguard financial heritage.
Highlights of the programme:
Keynotes speeches by William Goetzmann (Professor of Finance at Yale School of Management) and Joanne Kellermann (Chair Pension Fund Zorg en Welzijn).
