Over 167,000 people in Metropolitan Atlanta work in financial services (BLS, Nov. 2015). Whether it's being trusted to oversee retirement assets, ensure sustainability of a charitable foundation, help innovative companies access the capital they need, manage risk, or simply provide great service, the majority of these people strive every day to make sure their work directly benefits society. But as the actions of a small number have demonstrated, there is significant room for improvement.
In a time where cynics abound, it's important to step back and have a positive discussion about how this industry can serve society even better.
On May 18th, please join us for an engaging half-day conference dedicated to developing a positive vision of the future of the finance industry in Atlanta.
The Future of Finance is a global effort to shape a trustworthy, forward‐thinking financial industry that better serves society.
