The Essex Finance Centre (EFiC) at Essex Business School is organising the sixth edition of the EFiC Conference in Banking and Corporate Finance.                                                                        

The EFiC 2022 Conference in Banking and Corporate Finance will take place in person, at the Essex Business School, on Thursday 7 and Friday 8 July 2022.

EFiC 2022 Call for Papers

The objective of the Conference is to bring together leading academics, practitioners and policy-makers and give them the opportunity to present state-of-the-art research in the broad areas of banking and corporate finance.

The Conference also includes a dedicated PhD session to give research students the opportunity to present their work and receive developmental feedback from expert PhD mentors.

The Conference is committed to providing a safe and productive setting for all participants. Should COVID-19 restrictions prevent the conference from taking place in person or in large group, we will adjust towards a conference combining online and in person participation, or an entirely online conference.
