About the Centre

The Hong Kong-Shenzhen Finance Research Centre is co-founded by The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) Business School and the Shenzhen Finance Institute (SFI) of CUHK (Shenzhen). It is the first research unit in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area that focuses on cutting-edge finance research.

Through inviting leading scholars, hosting international conferences, recruiting top researchers, data scientists and PhD students, as well as interacting with other research centres within the SFI, our centre will generate synergies between two CUHK campuses and facilitate collaborations around the world.

In addition, we will generate comprehensive datasets, train academic and industry talents, support rigorous research, empower companies and government agencies, and ultimately contribute to intellectual exchanges and financial activities in the Greater Bay Area.
