About Us

From 1 January 2015, the CAREFIN and Paolo Baffi Centre on International Markets, Money and Regulation have integrated their activities in a new research centre named BAFFI CAREFIN (Centre for Applied Research on International Markets, Banking, Finance and Regulation). The merger will allow the new BAFFI CAREFIN Centre to continue to produce applied multi-disciplinary research on banking, finance, central banking and monetary policy and regulation in national and international markets.

In addition to strenthening our leadership in the fields of financial regulation and risk management, the fusion bridges Baffi Centre expertise in Central Banking, monetary policy and financial and supervision, international economics, sovereign funds and the ties between law and economics, with Carefin's know-how in investment banking, structured finance, insurance and pension funds, asset management and financial and insurance education.

The activity of the Baffi Carefin Centre is carried out by ten research units whose main fields of interest are focused on central banking, monetary policy and financial and supervision, international economics, sovereign funds, investment banking, structured finance, insurance and pension funds, asset management and financial and insurance education.
