The Mitsui Life Financial Research Center, established in 1990 and supported by the Mitsui Life Insurance Company and Ross School of Business, encourages and supports academic research in finance. Initially, the Center focused on Asia and the Pacific Rim nations, but, as financial markets have expanded globally, the focus has become broader.  The Center addresses a wide range of financial issues relevant to academics and practitioners alike by hosting visiting scholars and researchers from Asia and serving as an academic bridge to the United States.  Center activities include an annual academic symposium at the Ross School, conferences held in Tokyo on emerging issues of importance to policy makers and practitioners in Japan, a lecture series of distinguished speakers from academia and business, and financial support for faculty and doctoral research.
