Salomon Center for the Study of Financial Institutions
Founded in 1972 by a grant from the partners of Salomon Brothers, the Salomon Center specializes in the study of financial institutions, including commercial banks, investment banks, managed funds and insurance companies. Recently, the Center has played an important role in the development of the new architecture of global finance and has been instrumental in the organization of several NYU Stern School book projects: Restoring Financial Stability, Regulating Wall Street, and Guaranteed to Fail: Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and the Debacle of Mortgage Finance.
The Center helps incubate several research initiatives, each directed by an NYU Stern professor.
Research Areas include Credit & Debt Markets directed by Edward I. Altman (past FMA President), The NASDAQ Derivatives Research Project directed by Stephen Figlewski (Founding Editor, Journal of Derivatives), Financial Institutions, directed by Alexander Ljungqvist. and the Financial Policy Platform, directed by Matthew Richardson.
Two earlier initiatives, still affiliated with the Center, are now on their own--Corporate Governance directed by David Yermack, in the NYU Pollack Center for Law and Business and The Volatility Institute directed by Robert F. Engle (2003 Nobel Laureate in Economics).
