We carry out research on a wide variety of topics in theoretical and applied Banking, Corporate Finance, Macroeconomics as well as Financial Econometrics.

These include:

  • Bank Capital Regulation
  • Capital Structure and Security Design
  • Empirical Asset Pricing
  • Financial Regulation
  • International Macroeconomics
  • Inter-temporal Macro models
  • Non-linear macroeconomic dynamics
  • Labour Economics
  • Stochastic dynamic models.

In the Banking area, we explore both theoretically and empirically different aspects of bank capital regulation as well as the regulation of other aspects of banks and financial markets. In Corporate Finance we study the effects of asymmetric information on the design of securities issued by firms and how the legal framework (e.g. creditor rights) affect the availability of funds for firms.

Our research also makes important links between Finance and Macroeconomics. We employ theoretical and empirical analysis to interrogate the relationships between financial markets and the macro economy, and their influence on risk premia and asset pricing.

In Macroeconomics, we are concerned with various issues related to Fiscal and Monetary Policy, International Business Cycles and Trade, International Macroeconomics and Finance and Labor Market Business Cycles.
