Banking and Finance

Welcome to the Division of Banking and Finance at Nanyang Business School!

Our division comprises two groups. One group works in financial economics, and another specialises in actuarial science, insurance and risk analytics.

Our faculty's research is consistently featured in international conferences and top finance and actuarial/insurance journals, including the Journal of Finance, Journal of Financial Economics, Review of Financial Studies, Journal of Risk and Insurance, Insurance: Mathematics and Economics, and North American Actuarial Journal. Many of our colleagues have won international awards for their research and contributions to the field. We hold regular seminars featuring researchers from around the world and also run an active brown bag seminar. Our division consistently ranks among the top three in Asia for financial economics research (Olin Business School’s CAFR Ranking, UTD Top 100 Business School Research Rankings). Our division is also ranked among the top five business schools globally for research in Actuarial Science and Risk Management & Insurance (University of Nebraska–Lincoln Global Research Rankings).

Our division offers various programmes at the undergraduate, master's, and doctoral levels. At the undergraduate level, we offer four specializations including Banking and Finance, International Trading, Actuarial Science and Risk Analytics with a diverse set of courses. At the master's level, we offer an MSc in Financial Engineering and an MSc in Finance. Our Ph.D. students have the option to write a thesis in either finance or actuarial science/insurance. We are university partners with the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Institute and the Chartered Alternative Investment Analyst (CAIA) Association. Our actuarial science programme is the only programme in Singapore that is accredited by the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA) and is recognized by the Society of Actuaries (SOA) as a Center of Actuarial Excellence. 

Welcome again to our division. Do reach out if you would like to learn more or wish to collaborate with us.
