NEFIN data

Here you find Brazilian financial data that we make available for research (risk factors, portfolios returns, etc)

Luso-Brazilian Finance Network (Lubrafin)

I am one of the organizers of Lubrafin. The main goal of the Network is to reinforce the existing links between Finance researchers from Brazil and Portugal. Researcher from other countries who are also interested in interacting with these two communities are more than welcome. We have annual meetings, one year in Portugal, one year in Brazil. A call for papers is regularly issued every year around November (website).
