Lauch of the 32nd edition of the International Competition

 of the "Mémoires de l'Économie et de la Finance"


"Long-term investment to accompany major transformations"

Despite the difficulties related to COVID 19 and confinement, the Centre des Professions Financières remains mobilized and, with the strong and reaffirmed support of the Caisse des Dépôts et Consignations, Covéa, the Association Française de la Gestion Financière - AFG - and the Institut des Actuaires, is launching the 32nd edition of the Competition for Theses in Economics and Finance.


The central theme of "Long-Term Investment" appears at the heart of the crisis as a priority. It concerns fundamental subjects, the importance of which is being measured with new acuity: the environment and climate, energy transitions, territorial development, migratory movements, demographic transition, governance method, primary goods (health, education, water, etc.).


Will also be, naturally, in the theme of the Theses dealing with :


  • Savings and investment (or debt) of the various economic agents, financial markets and their tools.
  • The role of professional players in the financial markets: intermediaries, banks, insurers, pension funds and pension funds, management companies, etc., but also States, Central Banks, supranational bodies.
  • Accounting, regulatory and tax frameworks.
  • Methods for updating, modelling, pooling, risk measurement and prevention, and control.
  • New technologies, blockchain, digital, data banks, artificial intelligence.
  • Specific long-term financing: infrastructure, research, health, training.
  • Strategic financing...


The crisis that we are going through and the implementation of existing or new means and instruments to overcome it, both in terms of health and the economy, also obviously provide a great deal to remember.


We believe it is important to continue working to highlight the excellence of European higher education and we are pleased to have the support of our partners once again in this endeavour.


To be eligible, these Master II theses, presented in 2019 or 2020, written in French or English, must be sent to the Centre des Professions Financières in the prescribed form before 30 September 2020. The winners, students and professors will be awarded their prizes at a grand ceremony in December 2020 in Paris.
