Mistra Financial Systems

This programme aims to show how financial markets and operators can contribute to a more sustainable society, in areas ranging from environmental impacts of the economy and financial stability to efficient financial services. The results will support both private and public decision-making, as well as providing a basis for reforms and regulation of the financial sector.
