The Good Bank : Global conversation

Mazars partnered with The Economist Intelligence Unit to discuss what makes a socially engaged bank a successful business.

Over the last year, Mazars partnered with the Economist Intelligence Unit to support the Good Bank, a research programme which gathered dozens of experts to discuss the best ways to improve banking and what that would mean to a wider variety of stakeholders. 

We are proud to bring this year-long initiative to a close by introducing our first edition of Collective Intelligence, a digital and print magazine. The inaugural edition focuses on the insights and outcomes of the Good Bank program, with contributions from many of our own experts and external professionals. Please click here to view the digital version of the magazine.

The topic is addressed through 3 main angles:
Effectiveness | Trustworthiness | Innovation
