Regeringsgatan 29, Stockholm

As Northern Europe’s leading financial center, how can Stockholm strengthen its position and continue thriving in an ever-changing financial landscape? What is the financial sector's role in aiding a much needed transition, and where is the money to make it happen?

Through our new initiative “Capital of Finance”, we will explore these questions and many more. 

About the event
