Mission Statement

The financial crisis brought the global financial system to the brink of collapse, devastating both businesses and households. We cannot allow this to happen again. Financial stability, regulation, and ensuring capital flows to the real economy are thus of paramount importance to society.
Focusing on topics that will inform the structure of European financial markets, the Research Department “International Finance and Financial Management” (IFM) carries out empirical research to provide regulators and policy-makers with evidence-based policy advice to help balance financial stability with economic growth.
