About the CFI

The CFI was established in 2010 to bring together key areas of expertise and facilitate close working relationships with the financial services industry. 

A vibrant, interdisciplinary research community

A core characteristic of the CFI is its vibrant, interdisciplinary research community, created through the affiliation of a broad spectrum of academic staff from across the University.  

Input from leading advisors in the sector

Our research community is enhanced by the input from an advisory body made up of leading practitioners from the financial community, who help the CFI to develop and drive forward sector relevant research.

Collaboration with industry and the professional sector

The CFI also collaborates with various professional bodies - including the Actuarial Profession, the CFA Society of the UK and the Chartered Institute for Securities and Investment – and works to provide applied solutions for industry generated problems.
