About this Centre
Our members include financial and time series econometricians, macroeconomists, and researchers in asset pricing. Together, we aim to promote high-quality and high-impact research, foster international collaboration and inspire the next generation of young researchers in the field.
We provide powerful insights to help those who make decisions and who interpret a range of financial phenomena; from regional house price variations to asset pricing, bubbles, volatility and risk modelling and investments. We host distinguished international visitors and we are home to a vibrant doctoral student community.
The work of our Centre members has been published in the top economics and finance journals. We secure research funding from a variety of bodies including the Economic and Social Research Council, Leverhulme Trust, the British Council and The Austrian Science Fund (FWF). We also run a series of popular events and host guest speakers throughout the year.
Our next conference on Frontiers of Factor Investing takes place on 2nd and 3rd April 2020.
