The Zurich Cantonal Parliament has elected Professor Adrian Bruhin from HEC Lausanne, University of Lausanne, to the Board of Directors of Zürcher Kantonalbank (ZKB), starting on 1 November 2020.
With 700,000 customers, over 5,000 employees and a balance sheet of around 180 billion, Zürcher Kantonalbank (ZKB) is the largest cantonal bank in Switzerland and the fourth largest in the country. Members of the Board of Directors are elected by the cantonal parliament and play a role comparable to that of the boards of private-sector banks.
Among other things, Prof. Bruhin’s role will enable a transfer of know-how between academia and the business world. Prof. Bruhin is delighted by this new opportunity, which aligns with his research interests and will allow him to make a contribution to his native canton. Moreover, as he explains, “it will bring direct benefits both to my research on financial stability and to the Master’s students who take my classes on the regulation of financial institutions.”
Prof. Bruhin’s research focuses on financial stability, as well as behavioural and experimental economics. In addition to his commitment to the Board of Directors of ZKB, he is also a member of the board of the Swiss Society of Economics and Statistics. HEC Lausanne congratulates Prof. Bruhin on his election and sends him its best wishes for this new collaboration.
