Established in August 2004, CAF is the newest of the few finance research centre’s at an academic institution across Asia. We have the mandate to bring together world leaders in all areas of finance, consolidate our position as the premier finance research centre in Asia-Pacific region, and achieve global visibility in the foreseeable future.
CAF is dedicated to research in all areas of finance, including financial markets, instruments, institutions, and regulations. The research activities of the Centre often focus on issues and problems in emerging economies, but are by no means limited to them. In addition to ISB faculty, CAF researchers include distinguished scholars from Berkeley, Chicago, Cornell, Kellogg, NYU, UCLA, Wharton and other institutions of global standing. CAF has also established research partnerships with major international and Indian think tanks leading to collaborative research and joint conferences.
