More about Dr. Jianghong Liu

Jianghong holds an International Business (MLitt) degree from the School of Management at the University of St Andrews, as well as a PhD in Finance at the International Capital Market Association Centre of the University of Reading, where she was a faculty member.

Before stepping into her current position at London Metropolitan University in 2019, Jianghong worked as an associate lecturer in banking and finance at our Guildhall School of Business and Law and the Business School at London South Bank University.

Jianghong's teaching focuses on financial markets and financial institutions, problem solving, econometrics and financial modelling, empirical research or dissertation projects, international corporate finance and financial regulation and compliance.

Her research is primarily in the sphere of empirical finance and her research interests include:

  • ethical banking
  • sustainable finance
  • operational risks in large financial institutions
  • industry sector classification and index performance
  • asset pricing
  • global systemically important banks
  • determinants of risk
  • profitability in the banking industry

She is keen to build more insights into the development of industry classifications (particularly the accuracy of financial industry classifications) and the riskiness levels of financial institutions. With the development of financial innovations, the fast growth of the financial market, and new market demand, industry classification and riskiness of financial institutions are primarily unexplored. They often require constant research to address many contemporary issues. She is very enthusiastic about ethical banking and environmental, social, and governance issues in the banking sector.

Jianghong studies financial institutions by observing financial inclusion from five degrees of financial inclusivity. She aims to make contributions in the research field of responsible investment to promote the wellbeing of households and economic growth for the long run. She is keen to study in the area of global systemically important banks to the safety and soundness of the financial system.
