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.
