We examine important topics for society and for good accounting and finance practice. We undertake research in a variety of areas, such as bank accounting and regulation, financial accounting, corporate governance, corporate finance, asset pricing and financial econometrics. Our work covers considerations of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) investments and reporting, qualitative accounting and sustainability, and studies of trustworthiness and accountability of decision-making for bio-diversity. Colleagues undertake research spanning equality and diversity issues, such as gender, modern slavery, boardroom representation and paid leave.

The wider shift in our field away from traditional marketing and consumer research towards responsibility-focused research has not gone unnoticed. In keeping with the vision of UN Sustainable Development Goal 16, which aims at ‘promoting peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development’, many of our researchers have embraced a three-pronged strategy focused on the overlapping ideas of community, the environment, and the marketplace. Specific research areas include sustainability, social justice, health and health inequality.
