Frank J. Petrilli Center for Research in International Finance


Frank J. Petrilli Center for Research in International Finance



The goals of the Frank J. Petrilli Center for Research in International Finance (CRIF) are to support scholarly research in the field of international finance, to foster interaction between the academic and business/finance communities, and to add recognition to the research being done at the Gabelli School of Business.

Funded by a grant from Frank J. Petrilli, GABELLI BS ’72, MBA ’74, the center promotes interdisciplinary collaborations among financial economists, historians, monetary economists, and other scholars, inside and outside Fordham. With a general focus in international finance, CRIF supports a wide variety of research topics, including the behavior of international financial markets, the microstructure of these markets, the institutions surrounding international financial markets, the historical development of these markets, and the process of international financial integration and the globalization of markets.

CRIF sponsors a working-paper series as well as regular research workshops. To foster connections with researchers outside Fordham, the center offers a visiting scholar program, through which active researchers in relevant areas are invited for short-term visits and collaboration. On occasion, CRIF serves as a host or co-host for conferences on specific topics of interest to the research community.
