Major investment in research on the financial sector and sustainable development

Mistra has set up a new research programme at the interface between economics and sustainable development. Mistra Financial Systems, which will be led by the Stockholm School of Economics (SSE), was awarded SEK 30 million to help bring about a greater focus on sustainability in the financial system.

‘Our aim is that, through Mistra Financial Systems, SSE – together with companies and institutions – will begin a revitalisation of the financial system and make it more sustainable, thereby strengthening Sweden’s competitiveness,’ said Mistra’s Executive Director, Åke Iverfeldt.
