Meetings

Golden Series

Following the inaugural lecture by Yves Mersch, Governor, Central Bank of Luxembourg in London in 2010, OMFIF launched the Golden Series of lectures and symposia.

Golden Series lectures are linked to international currency arrangements and the 40th anniversary of the ending of the Bretton Woods system with the closing of the ‘gold window’ by President Nixon in August 1971.

The expanded Golden Series, now in its fourth year, is a full, annual programme of public lectures and panel discussions followed by private, off-the-record working lunches for around 16 people which are often preceded and followed by one-to-one meetings, typically held at Armourers’ Hall, in the City of London.
