FMG discussion papers

The FMG's discussion paper series dates back to the founding of the FMG in 1987 with the first papers having been written by FMG co-founders Mervyn King and Charles Goodhart. Currently, all papers from 1995 onwards are available online.

Discussion papers are authored primarily by FMG staff, associates and research students and provide insights into cutting edge financial markets research currently being carried out at the FMG. Research published in the discussion paper series typically goes on to final publication in the top economics and finance journals.
