Founded in 2008, the Institut Louis Bachelier is a networked organization that works for the financing, dissemination and maximum impact of research of excellence in economics and finance. With its 46 research programmes, nearly 350 active researchers, and 72 committed partners (companies and public agencies), the Institut Louis Bachelier successfully brings together academic institutions, economic partners and public authorities. Supported by patronage schemes and the public authorities, the Institute has a policy of complete impartiality. Its research teams thus enjoy complete independence. In addition, the Institute also draws on top-rank academics from European, American and Asian academic institutions.
