FE Practioners Seminar: Jean-Christophe de Swaan

Schapiro Hall (CEPSR) Davis Auditorium
Abstract: No attention has been devoted to how individuals in today’s finance industry can successfully pursue careers that benefit society while upholding humanistic values. No parameters have been developed to assess whether a finance professional contributes to others. I propose a qualitative framework to assess whether individuals in finance impact others positively. This discussion will focus on one aspect of this framework – whether a financial activity is socially wealth creating – and draw largely from examples linked to the work of investment professionals.
