Our Research

We are focused key areas where Digital Finance can have the maximum impact

The DFCRC’s research strategically targets the most prominent challenges needed to progress the field of Digital Finance, as identified by our industry network. It also supports the asset class ‘verticals’ that DFCRC has chosen to focus on (natural assets / impact investments, key minerals for decarbonisation, and financial markets infrastructure), as areas of large impact potential.
