Ian Crowther LL.M (Hons) LL.B (Hons) (Lancaster) AFHEA

Lecturer in Banking and Financial Markets


I joined Sheffield Hallam University in September 2018, and teach on various banking and finance modules that reflect my critical research interests. These include areas of specialist banking and post-crisis banking regulation, as well as the politics of regulation, financialisation, financial crisis and heterodox economics.

I submitted my PhD thesis, entitled "A critique of post-crisis structural and prudential banking regulation: the UK case", at the University of Manchester Alliance Manchester Business School and await viva examination in December 2018.

Over a 15 year period, I worked in numerous London-based banking institutions (Natwest, RBS, HBoS and Lloyds) as a Director — specialising in mid-market private equity-based leveraged buy-outs. I also held senior positions in loan origination, portfolio management and secondary trading of primary flow and distressed situations, and sit on the European Loan Market Association’s Legal Documentation and Trade Practices Committee.
