New Fintech Center Launched at Hebrew University
The fintech center is funded by a $1.3 million donation from Israeli fintech entrepreneur David Gershon
Gershon co-founded financial services company SuperDerivatives Inc. in 1999. The company’s options pricing system was quickly adopted by banks worldwide, and in 2014, it was bought by Intercontinental Exchange, which owns the New York Stock Exchange, for $350 million. Today, Gershon is a professor at the Hebrew University’s finance and banking department.
