Research Centre Finance, Leuven
In the past the research of the research group Finance mainly focused on research in corporate finance. However, during the last years the group committed to a thorough repositioning by extending its research agenda to investments and financial markets (by hiring K. Smedts and G. Wuyts). Furthermore, with the recent recruitment of Hans Degryse (BOFZAP 2012) the group’s expertise also covers banking and micro financing. Taking advantage of new developments in research areas was an important consideration in this repositioning.
