F.H. Langhammer Series on Public Policy

March 3, 2015

AGI was pleased to host a private breakfast discussion with a special guest, Dr. Andreas Dombret, member of the Executive Board of the Bundesbank. The discussion focused on the current situation in the euro area. More specifically, he addressed the ongoing efforts to overhaul the banking sector in the monetary union and highlight how the new Single Supervisory Mechanism (SSM) of European banks is working with national supervisors in member countries.

Dr. Andreas Dombret has been at the center of global and transatlantic financial regulatory discussions, as well as the Bundesbank’s response to ongoing challenges in the euro area. Before joining the Bundesbank in 2010, he was Bank of America’s vice chairman for Europe and head for Germany, Austria, and Switzerland and the co-head of Rothschild Germany. Between 1992 and 2002, he worked at JP Morgan in Frankfurt and London, from 1999 onward as managing director. Dr. Dombret is a member of several boards of trustees, including of the Center for Financial Studies in Frankfurt and of the Austrian Society for Bank Research in Vienna. He is also a member of the board of the International Center for Monetary and Banking Studies and the Exchange Experts Commission. Dr. Dombret holds a PhD in business management from Friedrich-Alexander University in Erlangen-Nuremberg.

This breakfast discussion was made possible by a generous grant from Fred H. Langhammer, Chairman of Global Affairs at the Estée Lauder Companies and AGI Chairman Emeritus. As part of our F.H. Langhammer Series on Public Policy, this event provided a unique opportunity for candid dialogue among a select group of high-level German and American corporate leaders, policymakers, and media.
