Center Overview

The Salomon Center, directed by Alexander Ljungqvist, conducts and disseminates new research across a wide array of financial topics and organizes conferences that bring together academics, practitioners and regulators.   The Center specializes in the study of financial institutions and markets, including commercial banks, investment banks, managed funds and insurance companies.

The Center's activities are grouped into six research programs, each directed by an NYU Stern professor:
Two of the Center's previous research initiatives have since been spun out as stand-alone entities: Responding to the Financial Crisis, the Center was instrumental in organizing two NYU Stern School research projects that resulted in publication of, Restoring Financial Stability: How to Repair a Failed System (Wiley 2009) and Regulating Wall Street: The Dodd-Frank Act and the New Architecture of Global Finance (Wiley 2010). The Center has hosted various conferences as well as its popular Chats with Financiers program related to the financial crisis of 2007-2009.
