The Centre for Finance and Development (CFD) is an ambitious, collaborative research hub and a leading international and interdisciplinary exchange platform in finance and development-related topics.
CFD was created thanks to a generous grant from the Fondation Pictet pour le Développement which currently finances five Pictet Chairs in Finance and Development allocated to Professors Anna-Riikka Kauppinen, Kristen McNeill, Ugo Panizza, Nathan Sussman, and Lore Vandewalle.
By offering master, PhD and executive programmes in sustainable finance and impact investing, it creates a new generation of professionals and researchers to lead the financial world towards incorporating sustainability and impact.
The Centre also launched the Swiss Lab for Sustainable Finance (SL4SF), a multistakeholder and transdisciplinary research lab to advance sustainable finance with a focus on the SDG goals in order to achieve inclusive growth.
