China is the second largest economy in the world and is expected to become the largest in the near future. In contrast to its economy, the financial system has yet to be further developed. China is facing many complex issues and challenges in its financial sector, which has crucial implications for both China and the world.

The Center for China Financial Research (CCFR) at the University of Colorado Denver Business School is inter-disciplinary and encompasses finance, economics, statistics, mathematics, and related fields. The center has an open-architecture structure with active members within and outside University of Colorado Denver. CCFR facilitates research on securities markets, banking, financial regulations and closely related broader issues of economic reform in China. CCFR provides a visible platform outside greater China and connects academic researchers around the world with the expertise, the Chinese government, international organizations and the business community.
