The Oxford Future of Finance and Technology Initiative researches the disruption caused by technology in the financial sector. It advances the financial sector's understanding of this and related issues by exploring global changes in business, policy, and society in collaboration with industry stakeholders.

International finance institutions, entrepreneurs, regulators, tech firms, and financial service providers are represented in our work and they are part of the ongoing conversation we are having about the future of finance and technology.

Established in 2020, we are one of the Business School's newest research initiatives. We are also proud to be part of the Innovate Finance's UK FinTech Academic Network



We are passionate about what we do and want to advance understanding and inclusion in our research so that it is useful and used by a variety of people.

Our research is already making a difference, winning recognition for the way it impacts practitioners and for its contributions to the Oxford Digital Finance Executive Series and degree programmes.
