FINRISK - Financial Valuation and Risk Management
The National Centre of Competence in Research (NCCR), FINRISK - Financial Valuation and Risk Management, is devoted to understanding risks associated with financial decision-making and the influence of such risks on asset and company valuation. The programme focuses on the study of financial and non-financial risk factors affecting wealth creation and the optimal operation of financial institutions. Despite its prominence as a financial centre, Switzerland has been poorly represented in the international finance research community. NCCR FINRISK has changed this situation, assembling first class researchers and contributing a steady flow of top international journal publications. A central aspect of the programme is the training of highly qualified specialists for the Swiss financial sector. In addition, the NCCR contributed to the establishment of the Swiss Finance Institute.
