Continuing the MIT Sloan tradition of bringing new perspectives to modern finance, the School recently held two international Finance Forums. The first took place in London on June 13; it focused on developing a Financial System 2.0 by creating advanced technology that increases the understanding of, and ability to manage, the world’s increasingly complex financial systems. The second event took place in Shanghai on July 19; it looked at the current and future challenges facing the industry, including transitioning financial markets and policy changes. Both events featured research talks from top MIT Sloan Finance faculty, including Andrei Kirilenko, Andrew W. Lo, Deborah Lucas, Robert C. Merton, Stewart C. Myers, and Antoinette Schoar, as well as presentations from industry experts and panel discussions featuring MIT Sloan alumni.
