Centre for Global Finance and Technology

Understanding the impact of technology on finance, business, and society.

The Centre for Global Finance and Technology at Imperial College Business School serves as a hub for multidisciplinary research, business education and global outreach aimed at greater understanding of the impact of technology on finance, business and society.

“The most important trend in finance is fintech – financial technology.  The advances in computing, automation and communication technologies have directly led to technology taking centre stage in payments, trading, clearing, and regulatory compliance. Britain is one of the leading global fintech players with an ecosystem that is more flexible and adaptable than its competitors on the global stage. Regulatory effort is underway to secure London’s dominance as a global centre for fintech.”

Imperial College Business School is perfectly positioned to play an integral part in the global fintech revolution. The London-based School is part of a top-ranked science and technology institution with a wealth of research talent in computer science, data analysis, mathematics, and finance.

The new Centre for Global Finance and Technology at the Business School will serve as a hub for multidisciplinary research, business education and global outreach, and will bring together leading academics to investigate the impact of technology on finance, business and society.
