Welcome to the Centre for Finance - CFF. Our successful researchers within finance are being published in highly ranked journals. We have close collaborations with the business community as well as other financial researchers within Sweden and abroad.

CFF as a strong research centre within finance was made possible with a grant from VINNOVA in 2010, including co-financing from 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 multidisciplinary 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 be a highly regarded and exciting arena for collaboration among researchers, students, financial practitioners and policy makers.
