BI Norwegian Business School is delighted to invite you to this latest networking event in Zürich, Wednesday 22nd November. Guest speaker at the event is Professor Kjell Nyborg from the University of Zürich and BI Norwegian Business School.

Professor Kjell G. Nyborg currently holds the Chair in Corporate Finance at the Department of Banking and Finance at the University of Zurich. He is also a Senior Chair of the Swiss Finance Institute. He is also an Adjunct Professor at BI Norwegian Business School. Nyborg  was educated at the University of Chicago (S.B. Mathematics) and the Graduate School of Business at Stanford University (Ph.D. in Finance). Professor Nyborg has published widely in leading journals such as Review of Financial Studies, Journal of Finance, Journal of Financial Economics, and Journal of Political Economy. Nyborg has presented his research at numerous conferences, universities, and financial institutions world-wide.

At the event, Professor Nyborg will present his recent book “Collateral Frameworks: The Open Secret of Central Banks” where he unpacks the opaque structure at the heart of central banking, the money creation process, and monetary policy — namely central banks’ collateral frameworks. The book covers collateral policy in the euro area in detail and sheds new light on central banking, the architecture and politics of money, and the euro crisis.

After the presentation we will meet for food and drinks at Atelier Bar.
