The Ethics and Trust in Finance Prize asks people under the age of 35 working in or studying finance to reimagine how financial institutions, together with their stakeholders, can balance the desire for growth, security, and stability with aspirations for a more sustainable, accessible, and inclusive financial paradigm.
This webinar, cohosted by Sustainable Finance Geneva and the Obervatoire de la Finance, will feature a selection of the past winners of the Prize to share their unique ideas about trust and ethics in the financial system, and to engage the audience in discussion and debate.
