About me

About me

I have maintained an active personal interest in stock market investment since the BT3 privatization in 1993. Much of my research and teaching is motivated and informed by practical experience as a private investor: both through the dot com bubble and collapse, as well as, the more recent financial crisis. I am particularly interested in the practical applications of investment theory and research for individual, as well as for institutional investors. I was awarded the Diploma in Financial Planning (DipPFS) in 2010, the CFA designation in 2003, the ASIP in 2002 and the IMC in 1998. My PhD thesis titled "The relationship between concentration and realised volatility: an empirical investigation of the FTSE 100 Index January 1984 through March 2003" was completed at the University of Stirling in 2004 and in 1999 I was awarded the MSc with distinction in investment analysis from the University of Stirling. I have been at the University of Stirling since September 1998. I was appointed as a lecturer in finance in September 2003. Prior to this, I was a PhD student, teaching assistant, research assistant and MSc student. Before studying finance and investment, I worked as a marine biologist in Canada, after graduating with an upper second in marine and environmental biology from the University of Saint Andrews.

Research

Household finance research that enables individuals and households to achieve a better quality of life by incorporating good financial decision making into every aspect of their life. For example, choices relating to, housing, transport, education, borrowing, and saving.

Current research strives to achieve this using theory, methods, and empirical findings from my work and others in finance, accounting, economics, and other disciplines as relevant.

Prior research activity has spanned the following areas:

• Personal Financial Planning • House prices and household finance • Environmental economics, finance and investing • Corporate finance and corporate governance • Reporting behaviour of small firms • Stock index concentration and volatility • Diversification within equity indices • Asset pricing and valuation.
