Financial Management

The FM SIG provides a forum for interdisciplinary thinking and research collaboration between academics and practitioners across the spectrum of corporate finance, and its application to other areas of management, including entrepreneurship, management, international business, regulation, decision sciences, as well as the foundation discipline of economics.

We welcome empirical, methodological and theoretical research that has a focus on the firm or the manager as the unit of analysis.  A core concern is to enriching the scholarly community, promoting debate and dialogue, and the deepening of publication skills. We are particularly interested in clearly identified managerial implications and impact potential. We support activities that promote diversity and inclusion in the finance profession. We promote our shared values of interdisciplinarity, impact, sustainability, boldness, diversity, collaboration and collegiality.

One in fourteen UK-based workers (over 2.3 million people) are employed in financial and related professional services. They contribute over £200 billion to UK gross value added (GVA), representing £10 in every £100 of UK economic output (Source: CityUK, 2020).  An important development has been the rise of multidisciplinary work involving both finance scholars and those from many other areas of business and management, and indeed, this work increasingly features in the BAM fora and publications. Through the Financial Management SIG we aim to help scholars to share ideas and discuss their work in developmental fora.
