Finance & The Future of Finance
With its ‘Future of Finance Project’ Re-Define strives to reshape the financial system in accordance with the following principles: equity, stability, sustainability, accountability and transparency.
Our position as a leading independent think tank specialising in financial regulation in Europe allows us to offer meaningful contributions to the continuous debates on economic and financial reforms. Re-Define advises governments, central banks, non-governmental organisations and other relevant policy-making actors, providing in-depth reports on diverse issues. While the detail of majority of our advice and consulting work remains by necessity confidential, Re-Define is also dedicated to improving the understanding of the general public of the financial system and its processes.
One of our key publications is the book accessible here: The financial crisis - causes and cures
The book aims to provide some answers to questions regarding the key causes of the economic crisis, while simultaneously offering an account of what could be done in order to prevent such crises from reoccurring.
