Wealth for everyone

Germans are saving a lot – and investing badly. Thus, they are rather poor compared to other Europeans, endangering their financial future. Pension funds, financing for education and research, and capital market development are all at risk. In this ESMT Open Lecture, Jörg Rocholl, president of ESMT Berlin, explains why Germans should reconsider their view on stocks and other investments. How can private savers optimize their investments? How can foundations invest wisely to fulfill their obligations? What can the state do to make funded retirement provision more attractive?

This lecture is part of the Science Week 2019 and will be held in German.
