In this week’s episode of “A Glimpse into the Future”, we talk to Cecilia Skingsley, Deputy Governor of the Swedish Central Bank and Axel P. Lehmann, President of UBS Switzerland. Cecilia and Axel are also the co-chairs of the World Economic Forum Council on the Future of Financial and Monetary Systems.
