The first meeting in Landsbankinn’s Financial Forum series was held in Stúdentakjallarinn at the University of Iceland on Wednesday, in collaboration with the University’s Student Council. This first Financial Forum focused on the finances of young people, the real estate market and first-time buyers.

Hildur Margrét Jóhannsdóttir, economist with Landsbankinn Economic Research, reviewed the real estate market and the situation of first-time buyers.

The Forum was well attended and participants showed a great deal of interest in the subject. Several questions were raised by attendees and discussions were lively. Landsbankinn thanks the University’s Student Council for a productive collaboration and the students for their participation and interest.

The Financial Forum is a new series of informative seminars Landsbankinn is set to host in partnership with various stakeholders and organisations. Each Forum will focus on different crossroads in life and certain situations that require a good grasp of finances, as well as specific issues like cybersecurity. The aim is to host the next Financial Forum at the Bank’s new headquarters in Reykjavík, at Reykjastræti 6.
