to the website of the Trans-Atlantic Finance Institute (TAFI). This research institute was founded in 2003 by RSM Erasmus University (Rotterdam, The Netherlands) and Fordham University School of Business (New York City, U.S.) in order to endorse and support academic research on international finance and to bridge the gap between the scholarly communities in Europe and the United States. This website provides information about our mission statement, our directors, and the conferences that we organize.
