About the Center
The Center for Banking and Finance Research in Rio (CBFR) promotes cutting edge international research in the areas of banking and finance and serves as a forum for knowledge transfer and collaboration between academics and practitioners. The CBFR aims at achieving these goals by cooperating with internationally leading researchers in the areas of banking and finance from schools in Asia, Europe, Latin America and the U.S. The research questions that are investigated by the researchers of the CBFR cover broad areas of banking and finance such as the functioning of credit markets, the importance of banking for economic development or the interplay between financial and banking regulation and the quality of financial and banking services. To discuss these research questions and disseminate the results of the research projects, the CBFR publishes a newsletter and a working paper series, offers fellowships and a visitor program, and organizes research seminars, workshops, international conferences and policy events.
