Financial World

Financial World is our journal, published in association with the Centre for The Study of Financial Innovation (CSFI). Available to students, members and subscribers, it brings together thought-provoking research and commentary on the structure and development of the domestic and international financial services sector and the wider economy.

Digital and audio

From the August 2020 issue, we’re making the shift to digital – which we believe offers you some real benefits and flexibility.

With the audio edition, you can relax and listen to Financial World articles at any time, in any place that suits you – while going for a walk, preparing dinner, or with your eyes closed after a long day.

One of the main advantages of a digital version is that we can embed links to take you directly to useful background sources and some of the wider aspects of debates. We want to make the Financial World experience deeper for all our readers and hope you’ll welcome this new feature. The digital version is also easy to read and navigate, whichever device you’re using. 

We hope you enjoy the new format and reading – and listening to – Financial World.
