Financial Market Symposium

The Future of Banks and Financial Markets


What is the future of banking and financial markets? This year s Financial Market Symposium will focus on a crucial issue, that is not only relevant for the business economy but for society in general. The impacts depend not least on the answer to a set of other important questions: Will Europeanisation and internationalisation continue to drive markets and policy making, or do we face re-nationalisation of markets and economic and financial policies? What are the plans of the regulators? How can banks finance themselves in the future? And which future business models for banks and financial service providers does the real economy ask for?

The Alpbach Financial Market Symposium will make the most important financial topics of our days subject of a controversial debate and will present the positions and solutions proposed by high-ranking representatives of the real economy, banks, central banks, regulatory authorities, and politics.
