Dr Ian Crowther Ph.D, LL.M, LL.B, PgCertHE, FHEA
Senior 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, UK post-crisis banking regulation, as well as the politics of regulation, financialisation, financial crisis and heterodox economics.
I completed my PhD thesis in February 2019, entitled "A critique of post-crisis structural and prudential banking regulation: the UK case", at the University of Manchester Alliance Manchester Business School.
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. I was also on the Board of the European Loan Market Association’s Legal Documentation and Trade Practices Committee.
