We are delighted that some of our researchers are participating in this year’s EFiC Conference in Banking and Finance being held at the Essex Business School.

The Essex Finance Centre is proud to bring you the 2017 EFiC Conference in Banking and Finance. This year’s conference will explore ‘banks and financial markets in times of uncertainty’.

The event will bring together leading academics, practitioners and policy makers from across banking and finance to hear state-of-the-art research, exchange ideas and network. The symposium provides a forum to reflect on trends in financial and banking markets nearly 10 years since the start of the global financial crisis. It will be the ideal setting for discussing the future of research and policy.
