At the University of Cambridge (UCAM), the Centre for Financial Analysis and Policy (CFAP) has
accumulated extensive expertise in research which aims to clarify the
interconnection between financial market regulation, the evolution of
market structures, price movements in financial markets, portfolio
behaviour and their impact on behaviour in other domains.
CFAP (formerly CERF) is a research centre based at the Judge Business
School and is linked with four other research centres at the University
of Cambridge under the umbrella of Cambridge Finance. CFAP focuses on
the theoretical and empirical analysis of the behavior of financial
markets, the relationship between finance and economic performance, and
the formation of financial policy.
Topics currently under investigation include macro-financial balances and linkages in the international economy, financial contagion, international financial regulation, financial bubbles and risk management. The main research projects currently underway in CFAP are all relevant to the present project and concern.
