The FS-FIRE “Financial Intermediaries and the Real Economy” is a Research Centre (“Centre”) at the Frankfurt School. Our overall objective in the Centre is to conduct and disseminate new research across a wide array of financial topics and bring together academics, practitioners and regulators. Across different initiatives, our team provides high-level as well as in-depth research and analyses, develops and implements innovative projects, advises on policy development and changes, and provides trainings and workshops. Topics include bank management and crises, monetary policy, private equity, FinTechs and climate risk.

Finance is at the core of all our activities, and while we have a reputation for unbiased analysis and applying a mix of economic and financial assessments, we always consider the larger economic and political context in our work. Creative and unorthodox thinking combined with a strong focus on the project specific reality are part of our daily work, as we aim to provide conceptually sound and practical recommendations and solutions.

Our business is driven by a combination of proactive and responsive approaches. We often cooperate with institutions such as banks on project structuring and implementation, but also develop white-papers on various topics in financial economics. We offer an international faculty and a stimulating environment with close ties to commercial banks and the industry as well as governmental organizations. For further information, see our website.
