The Finance and Accounting group aims to improve financial management and create value. Drawing on the group members’ expertise, we focus on four core business themes that drive financial excellence: financial policy, investments, risk management and corporate restructuring.

We teach finance and accounting in a way that improves the performance of individual participants as well as that of the organisation.Taking a very practical focus, we look at finance in a company’s context, and help managers and directors determine what drives value, and what can be improved. We work with individuals who have experience in finance, but we also take participants who are uncomfortable in financial conversations and give them the ability and confidence to contribute at a higher level to their businesses and help create value and make better decisions

Our experienced researchers undertake commissioned pieces of empirical research on a variety of finance and accounting topics. This high-profile research is frequently cited in reports by companies, financial services industry and the government.
