The Foundation for the Advancement of Finnish Securities Markets (SAE) has extended its funding for the GSF until the end of 2027

This funding is vitally important for the GSF as it enables the long-term planning of PhD education in Finland and the organization of regular high-quality PhD courses, research workshops and seminars. The GSF is extremely grateful for the long term funding that we have received from The Foundation for the Advancement of Finnish Securities Markets since the very beginning of the GSF in 2005. Their funding has been instrumental in the development work of the GSF and its PhD course curriculum to match with the highest international standards. The best testimony of the quality is the outstanding placement record of the graduated doctors.
