Vanguard founder John Bogle will join Stephen Davis and Jon Lukomnik, authors of What They Do With Your Money: How the Financial System Fails Us and How to Fix It, and Vermont Law School professor Jennifer Taub for a robust, provocative discussion of how to fix U.S. financial/investing institutions so that they serve individual citizen investors and the real economy.
The program, hosted by the John L. Weinberg Center for Corporate Governance, will be held at Gore Recital Hall at the University of Delaware on Tuesday, November 1 in Newark, Delaware from 9:30 AM to 12:00 PM.
The program, “How the Financial System Fails Investors and How to Fix it from a Structural and Governance Perspective” will explore these issues: How have short-term oriented capital markets, financial Intermediaries and executive compensation structures both in financial/investing institutions and in our corporations combined to reduce long-term corporate investment in America? What are the consequences of governance gaps in investing institutions? What about the governance structures of pension plans and their plan sponsors? Should there be a shift in the governance paradigm to give individual citizen investors more transparency and more of a voice?
The discussion will also showcase potential solutions that range from the narrow and technical, such as potential revisions to the tax law, to the big and ambitious, such as fresh models of governance and transparency for financial/investing institutions and for pension/savings plans.
There is no charge for the program, and a complimentary lunch will be served. Delaware DE CLE credits will be provided, and CPE credits will be provided by event partner, SallieMae. A book signing will take place after the program and copies of the book will be available for purchase. Click here to learn more and to register to attend.
