Center for Financial Research


Researchers conduct and publish empirical and theoretical research on topics relevant to the condition of the banking industry, bank regulation and deposit insurance. They design studies in response to developments in the financial markets and changes in banking practices. Researchers analyze the economic impact of existing and proposed legislation. They also develop statistical and financial models to support FDIC operations in such areas as finance, deposit insurance, bank safety and soundness, bank supervision and bank failure resolution.
