Financial Services: Competition, Conduct, and Consumer Protection (CCC)
The Financial Services: Competition, Conduct, and Consumer Protection (CCC) research cluster draws upon Bangor’s established reputation in Banking and Finance research. In this group we consider several key issues in financial regulation:
- Why does the conduct of firms in the financial sector continue to court controversy?
- Is financial regulation and competition working in banking and financial markets?
- How is competition driving innovation in the sector? Do financial markets require intervention to facilitate or emulate effective competition, and to what extent?
- What is the future of banking?
- What is the role of corporate culture in banking and finance?
- How can we incentivise firms to act ‘fairly’? How does remuneration in the financial sector affect the decision making of managers and employees?
- Are financial markets working in the interests of consumers? Is ‘poor quality’ decision making being facilitated by firms?
The group aims to provide both credible and compelling academic output addressing these questions. Through such academic work we aim to make a significant contribution to the policy landscape.
