The China-UK Research Centre for Financial Informatics and Service Engineering (CU-FISE), a joint endeavour between the Shanghai University of Finance and Economics (SUFE) and Henley Business School was launched on 2nd April 2013 in Shanghai, China. Taking advantage of this launch event, the 2013 Symposium on Financial Informatics and Service Engineering was held at SUFE; to which three professors from Henley Business School were invited to deliver keynote speeches: Kecheng Liu, Adrian Bell and Jill Solomon.

Professor Liming Fan, President of Shanghai University of Finance and Economics, welcomed the delegates. Mr Tim Standbrook, Consul of Science and Innovation, and British Consulate General in Shanghai, expressed congratulations and wishes to the Centre.

Prof. Kecheng Liu delivered a warm message of congratulations from Prof. John Board, Dean of Henley Business School, who would like to see fruitful collaboration between the two universities through the research work conducted in the new research centre.

The China-UK Research Centre for Financial Informatics and Service Engineering (CU-FISE) is a multi-disciplinary research centre jointly launched by Henley Business School and the School of Information Management and Engineering (SIME), Shanghai University of Finance and Economics. This is the first joint research centre at SUFE, which has been created in collaboration with an overseas university, which is an important action to strengthen international communication and cooperation, whilst promoting collaborative innovations and reinforce social services initiatives.

CU-FISE is based on 'Shanghai's thousand talents programme', and relies on the strong academic strengths and expertise, and joint research efforts, of both the Shanghai University of Finance and Economics, and Henley Business School. CU-FISE aims to attract a wide range of outstanding research talents and scientists in the area of financial informatics and engineering and is committed to engage in cutting-edge research in the field of financial intelligence, financial simulation, risk management, financial IT services, financial systems security, behavioural financial and other financial information engineering. The Centre promotes the development and establishment of Shanghai as the international financial centre. By benefiting from world-leading research in theories and application, CU-FISE will bring value to Chinese central and municipal governments, as well as financial institutions and enterprises.

The key purposes are to:

  • provide decision-makers with professional advice and technical support
  • construct a high level and open research platform
  • promote and strengthen the research in the field of financial engineering
  • continuously produce high-quality financial information engineering professionals.
