CIFR announces the funding of eleven more research projects

Tuesday, 27 November 2012  Features

Following the most recent funding round, CIFR's research program grows to 24 projects. More of Australia's leading academics are supported in their investigation of fundamental finance sector issues. 

Once again the calibre of each submission was extremely high, providing for a highly competitive process. Projects were assessed and selected according to a rigorous process involving extensive consultations with academics, regulatory, policy and industry assessors.

The eleven research projects funded this round will investigate a range of issues including:

Stock market rules, regulations and reactions to information with respect to Basel II bank reports, rights issues and placements, cross listed stocks and exchange consolidations;

The monitoring and performance attributes of superannuation funds with specific attention to the identification of systemic risks; 

The examination of systemic risks in financial and real sectors, an exploration of financial stability and competition, analysis of regulatory measures imposed following the Global Financial Crisis and an investigation of asset impairment judgements by financial managers.

Expressions of Interest for the next round of funding are invited to be submitted by February 5th, 2013.
