What are our objectives ?

The Belgian Finance Center was launched in order to :
  • Promote Belgian finance and financial players internationally;
  • Develop communication and exchange between members;
  • Promote and spread research and financial information;
  • Create a feeling of belonging to the local financial world.

Every two months, it organises conferences on various financial topics as well as once a year a gala evening with a distinguished speaker.
