Corporate Governance of Financial Institutions. Law, conduct and culture

Co-editors: Prof. Guido Ferrarini – Prof. Danny Busch – Prof. Gerard van Solinge

The goals of this project are specified in my paper “Understanding the Role of Corporate Governance in Financial Institutions: A Research Agenda” (ECGI Law Working Paper 247/2017) and will be further explained in a paper that I am presently drafting on “Governing Financial Institutions: The Role of Culture”. These two papers set the foundations for a collective work, which will explore the corporate governance of financial institutions from an interdisciplinary perspective, including financial regulation, corporate law, ethics and culture.



Boards and Shareholders in European Listed Companies: Facts, Context and Post-Crisis Reforms

A Research Project sponsored by Emittenti Titoli S.p.A.

Co-editors: Prof. Guido Ferrarini – Prof. Massimo Belcredi

Corporate governance is still at the centre of the policy debate in the wake of the financial crisis. Policy proposals are becoming increasingly pervasive and, sometimes, intrusive; however, they are often based on a conventional wisdom and weak anecdotal evidence. The aim of this project is to analyze some pivotal topics in Corporate Governance, analysing both pre- and post-crisis periods from a law & economics perspective.

The outcome of this project is a volume published by Cambridge University Press, collecting a number of papers written by European experts in the corporate governance field. The volume have been presented at several international conferences in 2014.
