Welcome to the Asian Finance Association

The Asian Finance Association (AsianFA) was founded in 1993 with the merger of the Asia Pacific Finance Association and Pacific-Basin Financial Management Society. The Association holds an annual meeting in the middle of the year, usually in late June/early July. The meeting and the conference move around the Asia Pacific region and are hosted by a local university.

The AsianFA is governed by a board of directors representing 20 plus universities throughout the region. The association brings out two journals: International Review of Finance, published by Wiley and Pacific Basin Finance Journal, published by Elsevier.

Interested finance academics and practitioners may join the Association by attending the annual meeting or applying to the association for membership. Members of the Association will receive hard copies of these journals.
