Media Enquiries

For media enquiries, please contact our Communication Officer Cornelia Kegele.

The Department of Finance is an independent and non-partisan institution with a high level of expertise in almost all areas of financial market economics. Many of our specialists are happy to provide information on current topics relating to the financial world.

Our communication mission

As part of the University of Zurich, the Department of Finance is largely financed by public funds. It is therefore committed to bringing its expertise to the public debate.

The members of the Department of Finance enjoy the freedom of teaching and research. They, therefore, speak first and foremost for themselves. However, the department has formulated a code of honor for the public statements of its members. 

Code of honor

Our statements are factual and reflect the current best state of knowledge. We explicitly try to identify value judgments and political statements that cannot be avoided as such.

We are aware that our opinions affect the reputation of the Department of Finance, the University of Zurich, and academic teaching and research in general.
