Finance is at the core of the most exciting developments shaping our world

Today’s financial markets are powered by innovation. Fintech is disrupting banking and insurance; behavioural finance is revealing what drives markets, and artificial intelligence is levering our financial knowledge. This puts finance at the core of the most exciting developments shaping our world.

The finance programs at UTAS create valuable and satisfying careers across an incredible range of vocations - corporate chief executives and major institutional investors through to fintech unicorns and private capital investors. Coverage of sustainability issues across our finance teaching enables our students to be equipped for a business environment undergoing dramatic transitions. Dan leads a motivated and expert team of finance teachers to provide the knowledge and perspective necessary for students to launch successful finance careers.

Teaching and research are the keys to achieve empowerment, transformation and sustainability.

The challenges the world faces today and the information available to solve the challenges are so incredibly varied that a full set of research tools are necessary.

Dan is passionate about implementing a rich array of research methodologies: surveys, experimental, systematic literature reviews, econometrics and qualitative methods. His current research includes: deciphering the drivers of global ESG outcomes, mapping planetary boundaries to SDG’s and ESG methodologies, improving SRI performance evaluation, understanding reverse causation between financial and ESG success, SRI Fixed Income performance in periods of crisis, experimental testing of financial planner sustainability choices, and the impact of climate change on bank default risk. He is also involved in exciting research from the Centre for Corporate Sustainability and Environmental Finance.

Dan’s industry experience, prior to academia, shapes and informs his teaching and research philosophies. While managing institutional investment portfolios, he developed innovative investment products including one of Australia's first environmental superannuation funds.
