Mitsui Life Financial Research Center

Welcome to our website. The Center functions as an active community of faculty, students, and visiting research scholars. Since its inception in 1990 with generous gifts from Mitsui Life Insurance Company, the Center has rapidly expanded its influence and reputation in the support and dissemination of academic research in financial economics. In 1994 a gift from Nippon Telegraph and Telephone (NTT) allowed us to offer even greater research support to our faculty.

The Center holds annual symposiums in Ann Arbor, Michigan, as well as in Tokyo, Japan, and provides research support for faculty and doctoral students through our sponsored Mitsui Finance Seminars, NTT Fellowships, Mitsui Distinguished Visiting Scholar program, weekly finance reading groups, and data acquisitions.
