We are delighted that AIG is supporting our third series of thought leadership events. Following our high impact events in 2015 on Rebuilding Trust in Financial Services, Entrepreneurship and Global Finance, Shifts and Shocks, we had an equally eventful 2016 series. This followed the same format as previously, with events beginning at 6:30pm with informal presentations from invited experts, followed by a moderated Q&A chaired by Finance Foundation director Andrew Freeman, and then the opportunity for networking over drinks. Our first event in 2016 - The Devil, Debt and Democracy - took place on 4th February with Adair Turner and Martin Wolf returning to deliver a highly stimulating debate - summarised here. On 14th April we hosted a thought-provoking event on Cyber Risk - What is it and what can Boards do about it? - and this was followed on 8th June by our event on FinTech:Potential and Pitfalls and on 29th November by a discussion led by Professor Mike Power, LSE: 'Has modern risk management failed? Lessons from the front line', which was inspired by his new book 'Riskwork', published by Oxford University Press in autumn 2016.

Our 2017 is now underway - beginning with the first event on 27th June on the subject of Blockchain - Hope or Hype: exactly what is a Blockchain, what are its applications and why is it such a contested idea.
