The CFM-Imperial Institute of Quantitative Finance was established in 2014 through a partnership between Imperial College's Mathematical Finance Group and Capital Fund Management (CFM), with the objective of promoting interdisciplinary research focusing on understanding financial market complexity and quantitative modelling and management of financial risks.
Our interdisciplinary research team aims at exploring innovative solutions to complex problems in the risk management and regulation of financial markets and training the next generation of researchers and risk managers, through a unique collaboration between academics and practitioners.
The Institute strives to achieve its goals through:
- collaborative research activities involving academics and practitioners
- the organization of high profile scientific events, at the interface of theory and practice, in view of disseminating research results to risk managers and regulators
- dedicated funding for PhD studentships on topics related to the quantitative modeling of financial risks
- partnership with the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Financial Computing and Analytics, operated by Imperial College and UCL
- opportunities for young researchers to join the Institute’s research through the CFM-Imperial Postdoctoral Research Fellowship
- opportunities for distinguished international scholars to visit Imperial College and interact with Institute members and students through the CFM-Imperial Distinguished Lectures Programme
