CFAP is one of seven closely coupled centres, the others being in Economics, Mathematics, Land Economy and Law. Together they constitute the University-wide network of Cambridge Finance, uniquely placed to investigate all aspects of financial market behaviour.
CFAP's origins lie in the research activities of the Cambridge Endowment for Research in Finance (CERF) from 2001-2006. CERF remains the major funding body for research in finance throughout the University of Cambridge, with all its former research activities transferred to CFAP.
The work of CFAP focuses on:
- the theoretical and empirical analysis of the behaviour of financial markets
- the relationship between finance and economic performance
- the formation of financial policy
Topics currently being considered include macro-financial balances and linkages in the international economy, financial contagion, international financial regulation, financial bubbles and risk management.
