Welcome to the Centre for Finance!
In October 2011 the Centre for Finance (CFF) became one of the interdisciplinary (across faculties) research centers within the University of Gothenburg. The objective of the research centers is to provide an organizational structure that enables interdisciplinary research. The faculties involved at CFF are the School of Business, Economics and Law, the Faculty of Social Sciences (Psychology) and The Faculty of Science/Chalmers (Mathematics). CFF has its administrative base at the Department of Economics.
We gratefully acknowledge the support by the Swedish Second Swedish National Pension fund - AP2, Handelsbanken, SEB, the Independent saving banks in Western Sweden - fristående sparbankerna i Västra Sverige and the foundation for the Centre for Finance - Stiftelsen Centrum för finans.
The Centre was initiated during the autumn of 2003. The prime objective behind this effort was to increase the quality in education and research, by leveraging the institutions pooled resources and more modern training.
The initiative to establish the Centre was a joint undertaking by the Departments of Business Administration and Economics and also sponsored by the business community.
