The scientific council is an independent committee of internationally-renowned professors of banking and finance from around the world. It advises the Foundation Board on all matters where scientific criteria should predominate and as such plays a crucial role in the pursuit of the objectives of our Institute. Indeed, in full respect of academic freedom and scientific integrity, the Swiss Finance Institute Foundation Board refuses to take decisions involving research or researchers unless armed with the appropriate recommendation from the Scientific Council.
