I join because I think that academics and practitioners need to join forces in order to exchange and disseminate knowledge, expertise and innovative ideas with regard to solutions to create a sustainable financial market environment. I hope to get in touch with people that think out-of-the-box who can complement our knowledge base at ECCE.
