Research Interests

My research interests are:

Ownership structure of financial institutions; governance of not-for-profit financial institutions; regulatory change and capital adjustment in US credit unions; merger and acquistion behaviour in financial institutions; and risk management in not-for-profit financial institutions.

Research Statement

Problems in the commercial banking industry have given rise to a renewed interest in non-traditional models of financial-services provision. One such model is that of the cooperative banking model. The ownership structure of financial cooperatives encourages long-term and prudent management, and a greater focus on the needs of customers. My research work has considered efficiency and performance, diversification and acquisitions and governance. Efficiency and performance studies have been undertaken for credit unions and Japanese cooperative banks and suggest that more efficient organisations tend to be larger, better capitalised and have higher levels of liquidity. Panel studies on growth, product diversification and acquisition behaviour for US credit unions highlight that small credit unions should remain as simple savings and loan institutions, while larger credit unions should incrementally exploit new product opportunities around their core retail competencies. An analysis of governance in US, Canadian and Irish credit unions suggests that the governance process has not accommodated or responded to changes in management theory or developments elsewhere in corporate governance.
