The first year's conference of specialists organized within the fair MONEY, the fair of personal finance and investment opportunities, witnessed a large participation of the foremost Czech specialists among the lecturers and a large number of visitors. A professional guarantor Petr Budinský, the prorector, prepared - in cooperation with other partners - a four section programme where specialists' opinions on changes in a financial sector were presented. The first section called "Europe in 2012 – Final or re-start?" was followed by individually focused sections introduced with this key question. The foremost Czech specialists pondered over the questions like whether we chose the right mix for the pension reform, whether modern finance products have to be complicated and whether we should take distribution channels as consulting or intermediating.
The conference and fair were organized by Veletrhy Brno, a.s. Our college became an organizer and a partner of the first year's conference. A collection of complete papers and presentations of individual lecturers will be published.
