Warwick Finance Group - News

In Memorium for Ben Knight

Tributes have been made to Ben Knight, Professor of Practice and Associate Professor of Economics, who has sadly passed away at the age of 78.

Professor Knight was a much loved member of faculty at Warwick Business School and will be sorely missed by staff, students and alumni, having taught at the University of Warwick since 1967.

New Faculty

The group welcomed Anastasia Lashova as Research Fellow last October and Shu Zhang as Research Assistant in April.

The Finance Group is pleased to welcome Nickolay Gantchev who joins us as Professor of Finance and Ruslan Sverchkov and Zhao Liu who will join us in September 2020 as Assistant Professors.

Farewell to Peter Corvi National Teaching Fellow

The Group wished Peter a long and happy retirement in March. Peter has returned to his beloved Edinburgh where he has no plans to settle down and enjoy the quiet life. Instead he is now a volunteer teaching assistant in some schools in Edinburgh where significant numbers of students live in poverty. He has already met some very inspirational people and we are sure that Peter, likewise, will continue to inspire his students.
