About this Centre

Our members include financial and time series econometricians, macroeconomists, and researchers in asset pricing. Together, we aim to promote high-quality and high-impact research, foster international collaboration and inspire the next generation of young researchers in the field.

We provide powerful insights to help those who make decisions and who interpret a range of financial phenomena; from regional house price variations to asset pricing, bubbles, FinTech, cyber security in finance, sustainable and climate finance, volatility and risk modelling and investments. We host distinguished international visitors and we are home to a vibrant doctoral student community.

The work of our Centre members has been published in the top economics and finance journals. We secure research funding from a variety of bodies including the Economic and Social Research Council, Leverhulme Trust, the British Council and The Austrian Science Fund (FWF). We also run a series of popular events and host guest speakers throughout the year.

Research Projects

Our current projects include four key topics on real-estate markets, bank supervisory and price risks.

ViLa-LOB

We are currently hosting a project on “Order Book Foundations of Price Risks and Liquidity: An Integrated Equity and Derivatives Markets Perspective”. This is a three-year project funded jointly by the ESRC and the Austrian Science Fund (FWF).

The ViLa-LOB project is led by LUMS Professors Ingmar Nolte and Stephen Taylor, with Professor Nikolaus Hautsch, from the University of Vienna. The project also includes Professor Torben Andersen, from Northwestern University, as a distinguished international collaborator. The objectives of the research are to improve our understanding of the microstructure of equity and derivative markets, their interrelations on a micro level and their information content for future prices, volatility, liquidity and jump risks. It involves financial econometrics, limit order book analysis, volatility modelling, market microstructure and derivative pricing.

Project Events

As part of the ESRC-FWF grant 'Bilateral Austria: Order Book Foundations of Price Risks and Liquidity: An Integrated Equity and Derivatives Markets Perspective', we are organising a virtual workshop on the “Econometrics of Option Markets” taking place on April 19-21, 2021.

Our last conference, “Financial Econometrics Conference: Market Microstructure, Limit Order Books and Derivative Markets” took place in September 2018, and a workshop, on "Limit Order Book and OPRA Data", took place in March 2018 in Vienna, Austria.

Past Research Projects

Bank Supervisory Disclosures

This project explored “the Public Disclosure of Individual Bank Supervisory Assessments”. It was a two year project funded by a research grant from the Leverhulme Trust and it was led by Vasso Ioannidou, Professor of Finance at Bayes Business School (formerly LUMS) and CEPR research fellow in financial economics who specialises in banking.

The research evaluates how the public disclosure of supervisory assessments of individual banks affect bank stakeholders, other banks, and bank supervisors in both crisis and non-crisis periods. The insights for this study aim to inform the debate on whether, and under which conditions, such assessments should be made publicly available.
