Transparency and information management in financial institutions From the inside out

21 06 2016

Conference: 14 Sep 2016, Madrid, Spain

EABH in cooperation with Banco de España.

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. In short: how can the archivist be managements’ best friend through understanding and using transparency?

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.
