A professor at the university’s finance and banking department, Mr. Gershon co-founded financial services company SuperDerivatives Inc. in 1999. The company developed an options pricing system that was quickly adopted by banks worldwide. In 2014, the company was bought by Intercontinental Exchange, which owns the New York Stock Exchange, for $350 million.

The center is intended to “promote the industry, help more companies grow and achieve business activity at international levels, and transform Israel into a global fintech leader,” Mr. Gershon said. The center will impart entrepreneurial know-how to students and assist fintech companies looking for talent and technology, he added.
