Centre for Finance and Development
Harnessing finance to fight poverty
Welcome to the CFD's webpage. The CFD is the Graduate Institute's centre of excellence for research on finance and development.
Established thanks to the support of the Pictet Foundation for Development, the CFD's research deals with finance and development at three levels:
international finance, and development finance in particular, including the role played by the international financial institutions such as the IMF and the World Bank
financial development, including banking and financial sector development in emerging and developing countries, both from contemporary and historical perspectives
microeconomics of finance and development
An in-depth analysis of the CFD can be found in the official publication of The Graduate Insittute, the Globe.
