Professor Lynn Hodgkinson, Professor of Accounting and Finance at Bangor Business School and its new teaching centre in London, worked alongside Sydney’s Professor Graham Partington on a paper examining the impact of a change in dividend taxation of New Zealand Managed Funds. The paper is currently being considered for publication by the British Accounting Review. Professors Hodgkinson and Partington have worked together for the over 10 years, and in that time have published a number of joint papers in the areas of rights issues and mergers.

Prof. Hodgkinson’s time in Australia also saw her present a research paper at the annual conference of the Accounting and Finance Association of Australia and New Zealand in Darwin, and enjoy a few touristy activities including meeting a koala, snorkelling with turtles and diving on the Great Barrier Reef.
