The Finance Group at Collegio Carlo Alberto consists of the faculty, two think tanks, and a few post-graduate educational programs. Every year, we go on the international academic job market to hire full-time junior faculty. This allows us to have an international internal faculty, hired from top institutions from all over the world.
Our faculty consists of (i) full-time resident scholars and (ii) fellows and affiliates from the University of Turin. We conduct research in most areas of finance, including asset pricing, investments, corporate finance, banking, and insurance. Faculty members have published their research in the most prestigious academic journals, such as the Journal of Finance, the Journal of Financial Economics, the Review of Financial Studies, and the Review of Finance.
In our seminar series we invite every year international speakers who work on the research frontier of their fields. Since 2006, we have hosted hundreds of international speakers, including Nobel laureates.
The think tank Long Term Investors (LTI@UniTo), a joint initiative of some of the major Italian market players in long-term financing and the University of Turin, promotes research and education to foster long-term investing in the real economy among institutional investors, growth, and stability. LTI@UniTo organizes workshops, visiting fellowships, and seminars.
The Center for Research on Pensions and Welfare Policies (CERP), founded as a joint project of the University of Turin and the Compagnia di San Paolo, promotes theoretical and applied policy-oriented research on the consequences of population aging, with an emphasis on factors affecting savings for old age, retirement and, in general, the welfare of the elderly.
The Finance Group coordinates joint programs with the University of Turin, such as the long-standing II level Master in Finance, Insurance, and Risk Management and the new II level Master in Insurance Innovation. LTI@UniTo offers an executive education program. We also provide teaching for the other programs hosted at the Collegio Carlo Alberto, such as the Allievi Program, the Master in Economics and the PhD program of the University of Turin. English is the language of all our programs.
