The FMG is a leading centre for research into financial markets. Research at the FMG examines how stable and efficient the financial system is, how it supports the real economy, and what policy measures can generate improvements in these dimensions.
The FMG was founded in the LSE in 1987 by Charles Goodhart and Mervyn King. It has fostered strong links with financial institutions at the City and with regulatory agencies. It has a long tradition of distinguished and policy-relevant research.
Research at the FMG is divided across three main programmes: Capital Markets, Financial Risk and Regulation, and Financing the Real Economy.
