Through its faculty and student research fellows, the Center for Banking and Finance provides top-quality research and written materials on a pro bono or sponsored research basis. The center is particularly interested in projects that support its mission.

The center has provided logistical and research support to the North Carolina Commissioner of Banks in various research efforts, including the residency requirements for state bank directors. The center is currently supporting the commissioner's efforts to systematically examine and propose updates to the North Carolina banking status to ensure the effective, efficient and equitable regulation of banks and savings institutions.

Faculty associated with the center produce a wide variety of scholarship on important issues related to banking and finance.

The center advises, through its faculty and its distinguished board of advisors, more than two dozen students who work each year as staff members or editors of the North Carolina Banking Institute Journal. This journal publishes articles on cutting-edge issues of banking law and regulation written by law students, and it includes articles from the national experts who speak each year at the Banking Institute.

In 2004, the center's Board of Advisors established the Center for Banking and Finance Research fund to establish an endowment whose income will be used to provide support for research assistants, materials, and travel for the Center for Banking and Finance and its associated faculty. The endowment funds were made possible by sponsorships of the center's annual Banking Institute from law firms, corporations and banks.
