Finance Speakers

Aurum Speakers Bureau is home to a diverse portfolio of internationally respected finance speakers. Our experts come from diverse backgrounds, and collectively cover the entire spectrum of finance. From globally renowned academics, economists, and best-selling authors, through to senior bankers and former national leaders, the field of top financial speakers we represent is breathtaking.

Finance is as wide a topic as it is complex. For many of us, personal finance represents our primary touch point with the subject. But the shadow of global economics looms large, and remote macro events affect our lives in innumerable ways. Corporate finance is no less significant. The ability of businesses to access capital and deploy it effectively is integral to their success. The 2008 global financial crisis brought the world of finance into sharp focus, and the effects of the covid-19 pandemic have ensured it remains in the spotlight. During crises, high-net-worth individuals seek recession-proof investments, while small-business owners increasingly explore alternative funding solutions.

Meanwhile, the issues surrounding financial conduct bridge the divide between finance and ethics, and views on the social responsibilities of banks, lenders, and market investors have never been stronger. During challenging times, there are no easy answers, but our finance speakers have weathered many storms. Inspire your audience to engage deeply with this complex topic: Book a top financial speaker today.
