Anjan Thakor, Olin’s John E. Simon Professor of Finance, has received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Financial Intermediation Research Society (FIRS) for his contributions to financial intermediation research.

FIRS is a global society of research scholars dedicated to stimulating, promoting and disseminating research on topics relating to financial intermediation. The main goal of the society is to provide a worldwide forum for those interested in financial intermediation and related topics.

FIRS seeks to bridge the gaps that exist in the flow of ideas across the different continents. It encourages bringing scholars in emerging markets into the mainstream of financial research.

Thakor delivered the keynote address at the 15th annual FIRS Conference this month.
