ABOUT SMU SIM KEE BOON INSTITUTE FOR FINANCIAL ECONOMICS
Sim Kee Boon Institute for Financial Economics (SKBI) is the premier Asian institute for applied financial research and training in financial economics. It is the think-tank within SMU that spearheads cutting-edge research in financial markets that is driven by industry and societal needs in Singapore and the region.
Over the last 10 years, a diverse portfolio of financial research, outreach and training initiatives has been built. In the coming 10 years, while further expanding that traditional financial economics portfolio, the Institute will focus our efforts on the areas of financial inclusion and education, sustainable finance, financial technology, and data and governance. To maintain our relevance to finance practitioners and policy-makers, SKBI also adopts a view on Asian and global economic trends.
The Institute conducts fundamental and applied research which aims at solving real-world issues. Besides research, SKBI also actively engages in outreach, executive training and research dissemination through organising courses, seminars and conferences.
