The environment has changed greatly for banks in the last few years. On the regulatory side, banks are under pressure to accrue capital and liquidity and to adjust their structures. The wireless revolution has changed the way customers interact with their banks, and technical advances have brought new competitors into the field. Finally, the low interest rate scenario has now brought the classical credit business under pressure. How can the banks react to these challenges on all fronts?

We kindly ask you to register for the lecture by sending an e-mail to lecture@econ.uzh.ch.

Be aware that there is limited seating available in SOF-G-21. First come, first served.
