The purpose of finance and investment – Episode 1: The origins of finance and investment

The world’s severe challenges to sustainable development call for financial decision-making from investors in capital markets, CFOs within companies, and governmental policymakers, to meet them. Especially now, at a point in time when private markets are also beginning to suffer the consequences of collapsing ecosystems.

In this first episode, Dirk Schoenmaker, professor of Banking and Finance at the Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University, and Xander Urbach, sr. project manager at VBDO, will help us reconnect with the foundation of our approach to finance and investment, and find answers to questions like “What have governments done to govern and guide the force of market coordination?” and “Will Sustainable finance solve the disconnect between finance and the real-world?”
