WU Gutmann Center Symposium
Financial Advice and Asset Management
Monday, June 19th, 2017
The financial crisis has revived the interest in the role of financial advice and in particular the standards that financial advisors should be held to. While financial advice is an essential part of asset management, policy-makers are concerned about conflicts of interests between financial advisors and their clients.
The WU Gutmann Center Symposium 2017 at WU addresses various aspects of financial advice and asset management. The speakers shed light on the underlying factors, including behavioral aspects, and market structure that influence these conflicts of interests and thereby the quality of financial advice. In addition, they highlight possible solutions to deal with the incentive problems.
