Videoconference Profit – We finance the restartof the economy – 4th Edition Financial Forum „We are financing the restart of the economy”

Solutions to the economic recovery, following the huge difficulties encountered in the COVID-19 crisis, cannot work without involving the financial markets, whether they come from the area of ​​government support programs or private sector initiatives. The banking market, investment and pension funds, the stock market and insurance companies are the ones that are expected to finance the restart of the economy in the next period. Financial market players, however, were also affected by the restrictions imposed during the pandemic and the effects passed on in multiple sectors. Their managers are looking for their own solutions for adaptation and reinvention, in a period marked by uncertainty and market volatility, with rising inflation, resettlement of monetary policy, technological changes and customer behavior. Of immediate interest to the public – the population and companies – were various support programs to overcome the liquidity crisis and lack of funding. More or less functional, they have tried to cover urgent financing needs, but can only be a stage in the recovery. The recovery of the economy on a solid basis requires, from now on, additional measures to go beyond the coverage of temporary cash flow problems. Companies must not only survive in difficult times, but also adapt to a rapidly changing world of technology, reinvent themselves, innovate, find resources to finance investments in these directions. Efforts in which not only banks but also players in the capital market or in insurance can be involved. A long-term development opportunity also comes from significant funding from the PNRR, a program in which the involvement of the financial sector is important.
