Lord Levene on the City and Business
Mercers' Lecture: Lord Levene
On Thursday 2nd February, Lord Levene's topical lecture, entitled St Paul's, the City and International Business provided a fascinating insight in to the recent troubles faced by the City. Having spent nine years as Chairman of Lloyd's of London (the largest insurance market in the world) and having been one time Vice President of Deutshe Bank, Lord Levene offered informed comment on the recent demonstrations against capitalism and the importance of the financial services to the British economy. He also spoke about the controversy surrounding Stephen Hester's bonus and the stripping of knighthoods from bankers. The lecture was received with much applause and the School is looking forward to the next lecture in the series by Sir Frank Chapman on 1st March.
