First Southeast Asian University to Join GRASFI, the Global Sustainable Finance Alliance

Singapore Management University (SMU), through its Sim Kee Boon Institute for Financial Economics (SKBI) at the Lee Kong Chian School of Business (LKCSB), has joined the Global Research Alliance for Sustainable Finance and Investment (GRASFI). It is the first university in Southeast Asia to join the Alliance.

The Alliance was founded in 2017 to promote multi-disciplinary academic research on sustainable finance and investment. Comprising global research universities, the Alliance aims to develop academic collaboration among researchers working on sustainable finance and investment, and nurture the growth and development of graduate students and junior academics working in these fields of research.

Professor Lily Kong, SMU President, said, “’Sustainable Living’ is a strategic priority area for SMU. Becoming a GRASFI member will enhance the university’s ability to contribute to the global flow of academic ideas that can generate solutions for managing the challenge of climate change.”
