The Program on International Financial Systems (PIFS) fosters the exchange of ideas on capital markets, financial regulation, and international financial systems through its acclaimed portfolio of Symposia on Building the Financial System of the 21st Century and other research activities. PIFS operates under the direction of Hal S. Scott, Nomura Professor of International Financial Systems who founded the program in 1986. The Symposium series gathers senior financial leaders, high-ranking government officials, and distinguished academics from the United States and their counterparts from China, Europe, India, Japan, and Latin America for dialogue on the development and improvement of international capital markets, and conducts research to help support this mission.
