DIW Women’s Finance Summit am 23. Mai 2017 in Berlin

Structural Change in the Financial Sector – Women’s Perspectives May 23, 2017 9:30 a.m. to 5:45 p.m. – Deutsche Bank | Unter den Linden 13-15 (Entrance on Charlottenstraße) | 10117 Berlin

Almost ten years after the crisis, the financial sector is still in the midst of a far-reaching transformational process. The macroeconomic environment and regulatory frameworks are changing quickly and profoundly, whereas new technologies are challenging established players – both from the public and private sector – like never before. These developments and their implications for the financial services industry and economies at large will be discussed primarily by leading female exponents. The ways in which organizations benefit from a sound gender balance in management and supervisory boards, among other topics, will also be addressed in the discussions.

Marcel Fratzscher and Elke Holst
