Financial market losses and research gains

Institute Foundation Board member Dr Philipp Halbherr addressed this year's newly minted graduates of the Master in Advanced Studies in Finance today with a positive take on the credit crisis, - at least from a research perspective!

Addressing the graduates, he explained that he did not wish to add to the sense of financial gloom, and wanted instead to encourage talented people to research financial systems. "The crisis will provide a rich body of data and experiences, giving us a new basis for risk management in the future".

Recently elected as representative of the cantonal banks on the Board of Directors for the SIX Group AG, Dr Halbherr is Head of Investment Banking, and a member of the Executive Board, at Z├╝rcher Kantonalbank.
