We are proud to announce our very first guest lecture on Fintech with non other than professor Arnoud Boot! On the 1st of November (4-5pm) we will welcome professor Boot at our faculty and end the lecture with some Q&A and free drinks.
Arnoud Boot is professor of Corporate Finance and Financial Markets at the University of Amsterdam and member of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW). He is Chairman of the bank council of the Dutch Central Bank (DNB), the Sustainable Finance Lab (SFL) and a member of the Scientific Council for Government Policy (WRR). He is also chairman of the European Finance Association (EFA) and directs the Amsterdam Center for Corporate Finance (ACCF), a think tank that seeks to stimulate the dialogue between academics and practitioners.
In his work Arnoud Boot focuses on the broad issue of ‘financialization of society’. In a narrow sense, how should we look at and regulate the financial sector? In a broader sense, how does the increasing emphasis on financial measures (e.g. shareholder value, price data from financial markets, often financial performance measures) affect decision making in general. Does it lead to more myopic and/or opportunistic decision making? Can we estimate the impact that AI and fintech have on the financial services industry?
Come to our guest lecture to find out about his view on Fintech and the future of Finance. After the lecture there's time for a Q & A and, saving the best for last, FREE DRINKS!
The lecture will be in English and open for all students, please sign up via firstname.lastname@example.org.
