Dialogue at the Center of Asset and Wealth Management –

Fostering continuous exchange.

The CAWM tries to establish a continuous exchange between practitioners, academics and students through various activities. This is achieved, for example, through guest lectures by practitioners, lectures by members of the CAWM, or the organization of networking events, some of which take place exclusively for members of the CAWM or are open to participants from a wide variety of fields.

Guest lectures at the CAWM enrich WHU courses

The CAWM regularly invites practitioners to enrich the courses at WHU with a guest lecture. This enables practical perspectives on previously theoretically taught content and often leads to stimulating and inspiring discussions between students and guest lecturers.

The Finanznetzwerk für Deutschland

The Finanznetzwerk für Deutschland was founded as a nonprofit organization in 2003 by WHU. Existing associations represent the exclusive interests of selected professional groups in the field of finance. The Finanznetzwerk für Deutschland, in contrast, pursues fast growth through the integration of all groups from the financial sector. This includes the promotion of young researchers through the establishment of contacts between students, young professionals and decision-makers. It also includes the organization of annual events such as the Burgenlandseminar, which provides students and doctoral candidates with a platform for presenting their research projects and discussing their findings in a relaxed setting.
