The Finance group is devoted to excellence in teaching and research in all subfields of finance.  

The group has grown over the past few years to become one of the largest and strongest groups in the UK and in Europe. Our faculty work closely with the financial industry, which provides input into research-driven teaching, and are also involved in the research board and education faculties of the ESRC and leading professional institutes. We often collaborate closely with colleagues across the University and institutions in Asia, Europe, and the USA. 

Current areas of research

Our world-class academics conduct research in theoretical and empirical asset pricing, risk management, microstructure, derivatives, financial econometrics, macro-finance, behavioural finance, international finance, corporate finance, corporate governance, banking, financial markets, household finance, development finance, and fintech.  

Head of group: Professor Andrea Gamba.
