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, Japan, and Latin America for dialogue on the development and improvement of international capital markets, and conducts research to help support this mission. In addition to the Symposium series and financial regulation research, PIFS offers a Global Certificate Program as well as guest speaker series and special events.
