Promote, share and disseminate research in economics and finance

Risk Foundation

The “Fondation du Risque“  (FDR) was created in 2007 by four academic institutions (the Centre Economique des Actuaires, l’Ecole Polytechnique, l’ENSAE and l’Université Paris-Dauphine) and four financial institutions (Allianz (ex AGF), Axa, Groupama and Société Générale). The foundation enables longer research projects that in a sustainable way supports the development of excellent French research in all areas connected to risk.
