The Centre of Excellence in Mathematical Finance

Centre of Excellence in Mathematical Finance

The Centre of Excellence in Mathematical Finance (CEMF) has primarily tried to form a team of distinguished experts and researchers in the fields of mathematics, finance, risk management, and economics who study and put forward practical solutions for improving the country's financial markets. The activities of the CEMF include the following:

  • Investigation of financial markets of the country's needs;
  • Drawing on modern domestic and international research and designing new financial instruments for investment and risk control;
  • Designing Islamic tools to attract small funds for the execution and financing of larger projects;
  • Design and implementation of tools for risk transfer from insurance markets to capital markets.

Structure

One of the priorities in the approval and establishment of the Centres of Excellence in Iran is the level and academic background of its members. In other words, a Centre of Excellence is approved by the Iranian Ministry of Science, Research and Technology if at least the team proposing the establishment of the Centre is composed of the top experts and nationally or internationally distinguished professors in the relevant fields.

Moreover, the Centres of Excellence have to be interdisciplinary in nature. Thus, the activities defined for and the members enlisted in these Centres are from different academic areas.


Head

The CEMF is currently headed by Dr Abdolsadeh Neisy.
