This theme combines a topical issue in the financial world with the technical background of our students that each have a great interest in finance and investing
During the symposium, we want to engage students with the current financial world, its technology and the involved companies by hosting a broad program of lectures, workshops and social activities. Moreover, we give your company the opportunity to talk about your business to our eager and ambitious students, of which most are interested in a career in the financial world. This enables your company to meet a group of students that can be a valuable asset to your company, considering the technological developments in the current and prospective financial world.

Fintech has been, and will continue to be, a disrupting influence on the financial services sector. They have brought about a drastic shift in the way traditional firms operate today. Having Worked in this industry in the past, I find fintechs very interesting from a research perspective, particularly in valuation and in credit risk management. B&R Beurs Eindhoven was founded a few years ago by some of my students and provides a valuable addition to the finance related elective packages atthe TU/e. This association offers a unique mix of engineering students that share the same interest in finance and investing. I am sure you will meet some of your future colleagues here at this symposium!
