Our research informs the solutions to real-world issues, such as innovation, urban development, and sustainability

IFT is home to a team of world-leading researchers. We apply a focused response to contemporary financial challenges, broadening an understanding strategic investment concepts and the needs of impact investing and investors. Together, we are well-placed as knowledge leaders in:

  • Technologies and the exploitation of technical innovation: we address problems confronting the banking industry and financial institutions, and research implementable cost-effective solutions.
  • Urban and infrastructure assets: we provide a focused response to investment in urban development, including how existing assets can be renewed, adapted and transformed to meet changing needs.
  • Sustainability and social responsibility: as key objectives in finance, we develop suitable impact indicators and solutions to support efficient management and strategic investments.
