During the second half of 2018, we were trying to work out the future of the Financial Services Club in light of one of our founders, Andy Coppell's retirement. We have now made an agreement with Z/Yen, the long respected City research and consulting firm, to run our operations together for the future. More details below ...
Z/Yen & The Financial Services Club
We are delighted to announce that Z/Yen has taken over the management of the Financial Services Club (FS Club). This will offer existing Long Finance and FS Club members a combined, exciting programme of events and unprecedented access to reports and topical & informative articles. Our first combined event is on 30 January. Details are below and more news and information will follow. In the meantime, to join this exclusive club, please contact James Pitcher on 020 7562 9562 or at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Long Finance is a Z/Yen initiative that seeks to answer the question “when would we know our financial system is working?” Since 2005 Long Finance has researched ways of building a more sustainable financial system. Over 14 years, 1,000 events, 90 studies, and 600 shared reports, Long Finance has created a supportive and caring community where people can truly question the accepted paradigms of risk and reward.
