Finance and Banking Research Centre areas of expertise

Our current research is based around three central research themes:

Corporate finance and governance

Members of the corporate finance and governance group are at the forefront of research, practice and government policy developments in the field of mergers and acquisitions. They specialise in international portfolio investments, company financing strategies, internal corporate governance mechanisms, board-CEO social ties and performance.


The banking group’s research revolves around the link between the financial sector and sustainability development. This involves bank excess reserves, monetary policy, interbank lending, bank networks, ownership, bank performance and exposure to risk as well as market power, bank opacity and risk.

Asset pricing and risk management

Over the past two decades, considerable attention has been given to equilibrium models of the pricing of capital assets. The asset pricing group examines how financial assets are priced, financial regulation and risk management strategies of firms.
