The Finance Research Unit (FRU) was founded within the Department of Economics at the University of Copenhagen in Autumn 2004. The founding idea of the research group is to bring together people with interests in finance (economists, mathematicians, econometricians and financial practitioners) to promote financial research. The major goal of FRU is to strengthen the expertise in finance within the department and the University of Copenhagen, enhance the interaction between the university and the finance community, and to build up international reputation in the field of finance. It provides a platform for co-operations and collaborations with international researchers as well as with the financial sector in Denmark.

 The director of the research unit is Peter Norman Sørensen, Professor of Finance at the Department of Economics. FRU is organized around a set of "core" members consisting primarily of researchers from the Department of Economics and the Department of Mathematical Sciences and a a set of associated members (external researchers and teachers, post-docs and graduate students).
