Dr Ru Xie awarded funding toward joint project with Goethe University

Dr Ru Xie has been awarded a scholarship worth £1,000 to pursue a joint research project with Goethe University in Germany.

The highly competitive Santander Mobility Scholarship facilitates overseas research visits to institutions within the Santander Universities network.

Dr Xie’s award will fund work on a joint project with Goethe University, Frankfurt, on “Bank Liquidity Risk and Stock Returns”.  

“The current financial crisis has illustrated starkly how increased funding costs and changes in market liquidity can trigger stock market failures”, says Dr Xie, Lecturer in Banking and Finance. “This project aims to provide further insight into the relationship between unexpected bank illiquidity and contemporaneous excess stock returns.”
