Research Centres

Founded in 2006 by the Cambridge Endowment for Research in Finance (CERF), Cambridge Finance aims to secure a research community of the highest international standard and reputation by bringing together the various research centres in finance within the University of Cambridge.

The Cambridge Centre for Finance (CCFin) is a research centre based in Cambridge Judge Business School. Its origins lie in the research activities of the Cambridge Endowment for Research in Finance (CERF). CERF is the major funding body for research in finance throughout the University of Cambridge.

The work of the CCFin focuses on the theoretical and empirical analysis of a number of key research areas in finance, and corporate finance in particular. Topics currently being considered include corporate governance and agency, mergers and acquisitions, the role of asymmetric information for corporations and financial markets, real options and corporate investment, corporate payout policy, financial accounting, and corporate capital structure.

The CCFin is a continuation of the Centre for Financial Analysis and Policy (CFAP) and was renamed in 2014.

 Economists at the University of Cambridge have joined forces with the New York-based Institute for New Economic Thinking (INET) to advance innovative approaches to understanding how our economy and the associated financial system really work.
