The Essex Finance Centre (EFiC) at Essex Business School is organising the sixth edition of the EFiC
Conference in Banking and Corporate Finance that will take place in person on 7-8 July 2022. The Conference is committed to providing a safe and productive setting for all participants. Should COVID-19 restrictions prevent the Conference from taking place in person or in large groups, we will adjust toward a conference combining in-person and online participation, or a conference held entirely online.

The objective of the Conference is to bring together leading academics, practitioners and policy-makers and give them the opportunity to present state-of-the-art research in the broad areas of banking and corporate finance. The Conference also includes a dedicated PhD session to give research students the opportunity to present their work and receive developmental feedback from expert PhD mentors.

We solicit papers in the following areas, in alphabetic order, but other related areas may also be considered:

  • Banking and financial services
  • Green finance
  • Behavioural finance
  • International finance
  • Big data applied to banking and finance
  • Monetary policy and central banking
  • Corporate finance
  • Political economy of central banking
  • Corporate governance
  • Portfolio and risk management
  • Diversity and women in finance
  • Rethinking of financial regulation and supervision
  • Financial crisis and resolution
