We would like to invite you to the latest webinar* in our HEC Paris Insights series, designed to support you and your teams through the next few weeks of lockdown and uncertainty and to help you prepare for a new normal.
With half of mankind under lockdown, the Covid-19 crisis represents an unprecedented shock for both global demand and global supply, which is putting huge pressure on firms, both large and small.
The aim of this webinar is to explore the financial challenges faced by firms during this crisis, and to what extent the extraordinary policies implemented by central banks and regulatory authorities may help to alleviate them.
The webinar will present a brief overview of recent events and regulatory interventions, contextualize them using important economic and financial concepts, and discuss the similarities and differences between the current crisis and the financial crisis of 2008-2012.
