Board of Trustees
The Board of Trustees of the House of Finance offers suggestions for research and teaching activities that are of practical relevance. It further supports the university in raising funds for the House of Finance. The Board of Trustees has the right to obtain information about joint activities of the House of Finance. It does not get involved in the activities of the individual House of Finance institutions nor of their board of trustees.
The House of Finance is proud of the distinguished members of its board of trustees. Among them are the German Minister of Finance, the President of the Federal Bank of Germany (Deutsche Bundesbank), the Governor of the state of Hesse as well as highly respected personalities from leading financial institutions. This is to ensure that the academic and scientific horizon of the House of Finance is not limited to the financial center of Frankfurt but extends to the German Federal Republic as a whole and beyond.
President of the board of trustees is Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. mult. Otmar Issing, President of the Center for Financial Studies and former Chief Economist and Member of the Board of the European Central Bank.
