Welcome to the Centre for Financial and Corporate Integrity

Professor Panagiotis Andrikopoulos Executive Director, Centre for Financial and Corporate Integrity

As the Executive Director it is my pleasure to welcome you to the Centre for Financial and Corporate Integrity (CFCI). Our research centre was established in 2017 with the purpose of exploring the complex interrelationships between economics, finance, accounting and law that together inform transformative events facing global corporations and affect relevant stakeholders in terms of social, economic and environmental welfare and sustainability.

Transformative issues and events including corporate scandals, global financial crises, economic instability and inequality in welfare allocation have placed increased public scrutiny on the operation of financial markets; the way organisations are governed; compliance with laws and regulations; alongside their wider responsibility to society.

Our aim is to deliver research that can better interpret such events and have meaningful impact for policy makers and society. Our moto reads “Eradicate Economic Inequality and Corruption by Celebrating Corporate Integrity and Individual Accountability”. As such, we aim to provide solutions to both national and international problems that not only affect current global citizens but our future generations as well.

The CFCI brings our expertise in finance, economics, corporate accountability and law together to provide an appropriate ‘hub’ to explore the synergetic and inter-disciplinary nature of such research problems. We all understand that to deliver research that can better interpret, challenge and have meaningful impact for policy makers there is a need to move away from a traditional discipline-specific approach and adopt a more holistic model that focuses on both the internal and external drivers of financial and economic contemporary problems facing global businesses.

Our academics have demonstrated a proven track record of highly reputable academic publications and research funding working alongside an ever-growing network of academic and professional partnerships here in the UK and abroad. I would like to encourage you to access and learn more about our published research and funded research projects, engage with our academic staff, and try to become an active member of our lively research community.

As CFCI, we are welcoming you and we look forward working with you to improve society and welfare for all.
