Welcome to our new website
Swedish House of Finance is evolving. We hope that our new digital home will provide you with just the information and news related to finance that you are looking for.
As of June 15, we have merged the two entities Swedish House of Finance and SIFR – Institute for Financial Research into one single organization, with the name Swedish House of Finance at the Stockholm School of Economics.
