The Conference brings together distinguished economists and academics hailing from leading universities, central bank research departments and government agencies on the one hand, and experts and finance professionals with hands-on experience of banking and finance on the other. Its unique feature is that the Conference goes further and aims to integrate local decision-makers, business leaders and civil society in general by opening the afternoon programme to the general public.

Professor Charles Goodhart is the keynote speaker of the first part of the programme. Lord Adair Turner is the keynote speaker of the public afternoon programme. The conference is held under the auspices of the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Southampton. They and selected other speakers and panelists of the afternoon programme are briefly introduced below.
