Faculty Centre for Applied Finance & Banking

The Faculty Centre for Applied Finance & Banking is a research centre based at the BAM Faculty of Regent’s University London.

The centre acts as a platform for academics and practitioners and gives them access to the latest research on applied finance and banking and the opportunity to share and discuss common issues and areas of interest. The centre aims to promote high calibre academic research about issues that are at the core of today’s globalised financial system.

The centre organises and hosts events for research students and scholars working in the area of applied finance and banking in order to facilitate collaboration within the academic community in the UK and worldwide. We organise one annual conference and several seminars on topics related to the current debate on applied finance and banking.

Since 2016 the centre has been organising an annual conference, the annual Wealth Management Forum.

In 2020 the topic of the conference is ESG and Sustainability in Wealth Management.
