The House of Finance combines several interdisciplinary research and education activities in the area of finance at Goethe University Frankfurt. It is an open meeting place and cooperation forum for academia, politics, and practitioners from industry and regulation.
The House of Finance houses the Center of Excellence „Sustainable Architecture for Finance in Europe“ (SAFE), a cooperation of the Center for Financial Studies and Goethe University, funded by the State of Hessen’s “LOEWE” excellence initiative, as well as seven research and education institutions that belong to or are affiliated with Goethe University. Researchers at the House of Finance come from the research areas business administration, especially finance, economics, especially money and macroeconomics, and law, especially corporate and financial law.
Altogether, 170 scholars conduct research and offer courses at the House of Finance, among them 30 professors, – one of the largest research groups on financial and monetary issues in Europe.
The House of Finance opened its doors in May 2008 as part of the newly build university campus Westend. It offers attractive premises and an up-to-date technical equipment.
