The member institutions of the House of Finance cooperate with a diverse range of partners at the national and international levels. We enjoy close ties to central banks and regulatory authorities, research organizations and think tanks, and various academic institutions.

Research and advisory projects have been undertaken for the European Central Bank, the European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority (EIOPA), the Deutsche Bundesbank, Germany’s financial supervisory authority (BaFin), and the International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB).

The House of Finance maintains close collaborative ties to two sister institutions established by the State of Hesse: namely, the House of Digital Transformation (HoDT) and the House of Pharma and Healthcare (HoPH), with whom the Goethe Business School offers joint executive degree programs. We also cooperate with the Frankfurt Institute of Risk Management (FIRM) and the Institute for Banking and Financial History (IBF), two non-profits dedicated to research and policy advising.

The House of Finance has a long-standing academic partnership with the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. The Metzler Visiting Professorship in International Finance enables Wharton School professors to come to Frankfurt and professors of the Frankfurt School of Business and Economics to go to Pennsylvania for one-year stays. The House of Finance also maintains close ties to the “Paris House of Finance” based at Paris Dauphine University. 

House of Finance researchers currently hold two important positions at the Center for European Policy Research (CEPR) in London: Nicola Fuchs-Schündeln is the Director of the program area of Macroeconomics and Growth, and Michalis Haliassos is the Director of the Research Policy Network (RPN) on Household Finance. In the area of graduate education, the House of Finance cooperates with a range of institutions, including universities in the Nordic Finance Network (NFN), and with business schools that belong to the QTEM network (Quantitative Techniques for Economics and Management).
