Banking History Summer Seminar: “Transparency and Information Management”

The European Association for Banking and Financial History (EABH), in cooperation with the Banco de España, is holding a summer seminar in Madrid, Spain, on September 14-16, 2016. The topic will be "Transparency and Information Management in Financial Institutions." According to the seminar organizers,
Transparency is becoming an increasingly important theme, and mode of operation, in today’s financial institutions and global financial markets.  This year’s EABH summer school will provide training on the latest developments in financial transparency and how financial archivists can serve their institutions’ need for evidence, information and corporate memory. . . . We will focus on initiatives within financial institutions to improve internal transparency for better control and compliance, among financial institutions to achieve costs saving and to drive financial innovation, and then moving to discuss new regulatory demands for transparency and how they affect financial institutions in the European and the global context.
The program is available here. Registration materials are available here; there is a 20% discount until July 15.
