The aim of the symposium on “The Social Value of Finance” is to bring together leading experts from different fields (finance, business, economics, development studies, history, sociology) to discuss recent advances in our understanding of the social functions of financial systems (banks, financial markets) and their impact on society in terms of social welfare, stability, and income distribution. The symposium accompanies the inaugural address of Mathijs van Dijk as Professor of Financial Markets.
