Online event – 18th June 2024

The Global Prize’s 10th anniversary provides the perfect milestone to reflect on the Prize’s journey, its key achievements and the contributions of its Strategic Partners to support a more ethical, transparent, fairer and sustainable financial industry. At the same time, it is a unique opportunity to innovate by expanding participation opportunities for young candidates, while providing new options for corporations and professional associations active in the financial sector. To celebrate this special edition, we have invited alumni to share their experience with the Prize and to provide insights on the evolving debate on ethics and trust in finance in the age of digitization and artificial intelligence.
