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. The crisis underscored the paramount importance of ensuring financial stability, effective regulation, and sufficient capital flows to the real economy. The Research Department “International Finance and Financial Management” carries out empirical research to provide regulators and policymakers with the insights they need to improve the structure of the European financial sector and balance financial stability with economic growth.
