The MAFS research network has its origin in a long tradition of research in macroeconomics, financial economics and econometrics at Macquarie University. The network focuses on research in international macroeconomics and finance, financial econometrics, the linkages between the real economy and financial market developments, and on time series methods. Major areas of interest in macroeconomics and finance include financial bubbles, consumer sentiment, economics forecasting, fiscal and monetary policies, energy markets, financial market developments and related econometric issues.

The network regularly invites prominent researchers in financial econometrics and macroeconomics to conduct workshops and participates in the activities of the Centre for Financial Risk. Members of the network regularly provide commentary on economic policy, covering both monetary and fiscal policy, and on retirement saving policy.
