Centre for Finance and Development

The CFD is the Graduate Institute's centre of excellence for research on finance and development.

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.
