Alderman Professor Michael Mainelli closes the Long Finance Spring Conference 2014.

Moving away from short-term performance measurement is regularly advocated in finance. However, ‘long’ does not necessarily mean ‘good’. Most theorists believe that the first step towards governance, control and management, whether scientific or commercial or political, is measurement. If we adopt ‘long’ does that mean we need to drop ‘measurement’? If we adopt ‘measurement’, are we excising the long term? This event will explore suggestions for reforms of long-term measures in finance.

This event is supported by Bank of America Merrill Lynch, City of London Corporation and Z/Yen Group.  For more information about Long Finance see www.longfinance.net
