This will facilitate the understanding of financial engineering, improve the current practices in the banking industry, and support decision and policy makers in facing the increasing challenges and the opportunities in the global markets.
To achieve its goals, FEBS is supported through the publication of the International Journal of Financial Engineering and Risk Management. The society also organizes conferences on a regular basis, which provide a unique forum to researchers and practitioners to discuss issues and exchange ideas on various topics of wide interest to financial engineering and banking.
