Department of
Banking & Finance

Today's world faces unprecedented challenges and complexities. The finance and banking industry is at the forefront of many of these challenges, which are both diverse and pressing, ranging from financial crises to digital transformation, economic slow-downs, cost-of-living crises, debt sustainability and climate change.  

The Department of Banking and Finance has been set up to address many of these issues in a rigorous quantitative manner through both research and education. Our work is based on the use of complex, and often large datasets, the consideration of sophisticated but practical empirical methodologies, and on solid theoretical economic and financial underpinnings. Areas of relevance include financial markets, central banks and other policy-making institutions. We also have broader interests, and some of our current work evaluates how we can use Big Data and Machine Learning to aid financial and economic analysis.
