The 2021 FMA Supervisory Conference

This year’s FMA Supervisory Conference was held on the 20th of October. We were welcoming our guests at the Austria Center Vienna to the event on “Sustainable ways out of the crisis“.

Our event focused on the topic of how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the financial market. We also took a look into the future and addressed the issue of how the crisis can be exited in a sustainable manner.
