In this year’s forum we focussed on how the financial sector is being reshaped by COVID 19 in the context of a challenging operating environment, uncertain economic and geopolitical conditions and Brexit. It is already clear that the financial sector is playing a vital role in supporting the economic recovery, embracing digital transformation and financing the transition to a more sustainable future. Could this redefinition of priorities caused by the pandemic be the silver lining that enables the financial sector to deal with the sustainability challenges ahead and truly “build back better”? What role should policy makers and regulators play in order to capture the momentum to better, fairer and greener financial markets? How to make this change long-lasting?
Martin Shanahan, CEO, IDA Ireland looks ahead to this year's virtual European Financial Forum.
