The Global Finance Association (GFA), a non-profit organization, is a network of academics and financial services communities worldwide. The Association sponsors annual meetings of the Global Finance Conference (GFC). The mission of both GFA and GFC is to foster research by providing forums for finance professionals to debate, exchange ideas, disseminate and to advance the education, learning, and practice of global financial economics.
