The Center for Financial Studies (CFS) has awarded the Deutsche Bank Prize in Financial Economics 2013 to Raghuram G. Rajan for his highly influential contributions in a remarkably broad range of areas in financial economics. Jury Chairman and CFS Director Michael Haliassos summarized the view of the international Jury: “Professor Rajan’s work spans a remarkably broad range of areas in financial economics most important to the development of economies worldwide, ranging from the central role of banks in creating liquidity and the role of finance in economic growth to the nature of corporations and their financing. His work develops novel empirical and theoretical approaches with significant policy implications.”

On 26 September 2013, Jürgen Fitschen, Co-CEO Deutsche Bank AG, presented the prize to Rajan during an award ceremony prior to the international academic symposium "Banking, Liquidity, and Monetary Policy", organized by CFS for this purpose
