New York, NY (PRWEB) April 17, 2014
On May 1, 2014, the New York Society of Security Analysts and its Market Integrity Committee in collaboration with CFA Institute are hosting a conference called "What is the Future of Finance?" (available in-person and as a live-stream) that aims to restore trust in the finance industry by improving transparency, professionalism, and ethics.
Based on an investor trust study that was completed in 2013, CFA Institute is launching a new program to improve consumer confidence in the world of finance. This program will allow attendees to discuss and examine a variety of tools for shaping a more trustworthy financial industry.
The last fifteen years have been some of the most trying in financial history with one scandal after another: the dot-com crash, the housing bubble, the 2008 financial meltdown, the House of Cards, the Big Short, Madoff, Stamford, Lehman, Bear Stearns, AIG, Too Big to Fail, record fines paid by big banks, the London Whale, and The Wolf of Wall Street. Lack of trust hurts everyone: consumers, investors, the financial industry, and the economy. Is there any wonder why consumer confidence in the financial industry is as low as it has ever been?
Attendees will demonstrate their commitment to ethics and professional excellence and learn how to help the industry progress by hearing presentations from:
“What is the Future of Finance?” will be held on May 1, 2014 from 8:30 a.m.–1:00 p.m. The conference location is NYSSA Conference Center, 1540 Broadway, Suite 1010, New York, NY 10036.
