The central aim of CERFIB is to bridge theory and practice through cross-disciplinary research collaboration – one that fully aligns with both the School’s and the University’s strategic objectives.
CERFIB recognises that the diverse empirical results researchers often obtain using the same theory depends largely on ‘translating each element of the theory into a robust empirical framework’. The rest depends on the availability and/or development of state-of-the-art tools to approximate the predictive outcomes of the empirical work to that of the reality.
We are a group of highly motivated academics, along with practitioners in the area of banking and finance. Our scientific network is growing as we continue to collaborate with leading thinkers from the IMF, the World Bank, the Asian Development Bank, and a strong international team of academics across the globe.
