Welcome to the CSFI

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.

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.
