The CSFI is a forum for well-informed debate and research about the future of the financial services sector.
We do this through a range of activities: written research, live discussion groups and networks, all focused on the latest developments in international finance. Our work is objective, topical and practitioner-oriented. It is driven by a belief in the value of free markets, and of open discussion.
The Centre's activities are supported by sponsorship from leading institutions in banking, insurance, investment, government, technology and the professions. It is run from London, but its range is global.
The City Debate: at the Mansion House. February 28, 2013
The City Debate has been going for around 15 years. This year, the CSFI joined forces with the Futures and Options Association (with the help of CISI) in organizing and running the black-tie, gala event. The debate went extremely well. The panellists - helped on by the Chair, Angela Knight (and the audience) - got stuck in to a challenging motion with verve and plenty of humour. We hope to do it again next year - bigger and better.

The Academic Expert Directory is a new online platform that will give City practitioners access to experts throughout the UK (and beyond). Academics and experts are encouraged to register and create a profile on the site, which can then be searched by practitioners looking for expertise. Please let us know what you think of the website and pass the link along to any interested colleagues.
