Registration at 12:15pm
Luncheon at 12:30pm
Five years after the collapse of Lehman Brothers, the financial markets are at a pivotal point. Public trust in the global finance industry remains low, leading to shifts in individual and institutional investment choices that impact
long term economic trends. How can the industry move forward to restore trust and reconnect finance with society? With its growing influence in global markets, how can Asia lead in reshaping the global financial system and in ushering in a new era in which finance can be an extraordinary force for good?
