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. The Institute’s 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.
