The Academic Council on the Financial Market System (ACOFM) is a global professional association of educational and research institutions, individual scholars, and practitioners active in the work and study of finance.  The goal of ACOFM is to establish and maintain multilateral relations, international cooperation and exchange between the academic community and financial markets.  We promote research and teaching on financial markets and related topics, as well as dialogue and mutual understanding across and between academics, practitioners, civil society and students.
