Centre for Finance

Welcome to the Centre for Finance - CFF - one of Sweden's three research centers within finance!

The Centre for Finance (CFF) received a grant from VINNOVA 2010 to establish one of Sweden’s three new research centers within finance. The Centre is also financed by the business community, the University of Gothenburg and the School of Business, Economics and Law.

CFF's mission is to contribute to a sustainable financial system through:

  • Excellent research focusing on financial intermediation, specifically the interaction between financial institutions and business/households.
  • An open and creative interdisciplinary research environment.
  • Close interaction with practitioners, education and society at large. 

CFF’s vision is to advance the understanding and practice of financial intermediation and to be the leading Nordic research center in this field, with expertise in great demand. It is also to provide a highly regarded and exciting arena for collaboration among researchers, students, financial practitioners and policy makers.

We gratefully acknowledge the support by the Second Swedish National Pension fund - AP2, Handelsbanken, SEB, SKF, Volvo, the Independent saving banks in Western Sweden - fristående sparbankerna i Västra Sverige and the foundation for the Centre for Finance - Stiftelsen Centrum för finans.
