About the centre

Mission and objectives

The Paul Woolley Centre for the Study of Capital Market Dysfunctionality at UTS has been established to research dysfunctionality in financial markets, and the financial institutions that operate within these markets. A capital market is dysfunctional when it suffers from chronic and systemic malfunctioning; a condition which can have far-reaching economic and social consequences. The researchers at the centre analyse why inefficient outcomes arise, the impact that they have on the economy, and how adverse effects can be mitigated.

The Paul Woolley Centre at UTS has been made possible by a donation from Dr Paul Woolley (PDF, 60k, 2 pages).

The 7th Annual  Paul Woolley Centre Conference was held at the University of Technology, Sydney on Thursday, 17th and Friday, 18th October 2013. The theme of the conference was "The effectiveness of financial markets in deploying capital to its best use".
