Financial Luminaries Offer Insights at University of Virginia Investing Conference

By Dave Hendrick


The recent University of Virginia Investing Conference brought together a host of key actors from the 2008 financial crisis, with regulators, bankers and academics reflecting on what went wrong, what steps ultimately saved the system and what the path forward should look like to avoid future calamity.

On the sidelines of the event, held at the University of Virginia Darden School of Business, former Fannie Mae Chairman and CEO Franklin Raines discussed the mortgage giant’s role in the crisis, while John Dugan, comptroller of the currency from 2005–10 and incoming chair of Citigroup, discussed the reforms that he said have made large banks considerably safer.

Also, Professor Maureen O’Hara of Cornell’s SC Johnson Graduate School of Management discussed the potential and limitations of cryptocurrencies and blockchain.
