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.
Sponsorship opportunities: City Debate 2014
The City Debate is now in its 18th year. In 2013, the CSFI joined forces with the FOA and CISI in running the black-tie, gala dinner. It was a sell-out, and by all accounts - a great success. The next City Debate will be held on February 17th, 2014. The motion will be: "This house believes that the 'normalisation' of interest rates will inevitably cause another financial and economic crisis.” We can promise a lively debate; with appropriately grand speakers. Please click here for further information, including the sponsorship menu.
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.
