Professor Graeme Acheson

About me

Graeme Acheson joined the school as a Professor of Finance in 2013. Graeme's research applies contemporary econometric techniques to historical settings. Much of his work examines how the evolving legal environment in nineteenth century Great Britain impacted on investor behaviour and governance structures in early British companies.

Addressing topics such as firm performance and banking crisis he has examined the impact of major financial events such as the failure of the City of Glasgow Bank in 1878. His current work focuses on the evolution of corporate law, in an attempt to better understand if private contracting acted as a substitute for mandatory shareholder protection.

Graeme’s research has been funded by bodies such as The Leverhulme Trust and The British Academy.
