Klaus Schaeck
 

Klaus Schaeck is a Professor of Banking and Finance at the School of Economics, Finance and Management at the University of Bristol. Prior to his appointment at Bristol, Klaus was a Professor of Finance at Lancaster University and a Professor of Empirical Banking at Bangor University. Earlier in his career he also held positions at Cass Business School and at the University of Southampton. 

His research interest focuses on the empirical modelling of bank behaviour. In particular, he primarily investigates the role of the government in banking systems in terms of regulation, supervision, and bank bailouts, and how such government interventions affect bank conduct.

Klaus has published in the Review of Financial Studies, and has also several papers in the Journal of Financial and Quantitative Analysis, several publications in the Journal of Financial Intermediation, the Review of Finance, the Journal of Money, Credit, and Banking, the Journal of Corporate Finance, and other journals. His research has been presented at leading international conferences such as the American Finance Association Conference, the SFS Finance Cavalcade, the European Finance Association Conference, the Financial Intermediation Research Society Meeting, the Annual Darden International Finance Conference, the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago Bank Market Structure Conference, and the Annual Bank Research Conference held at the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. He is also a regular contributor to FINEST, the Financial Intermediation Network of European Studies. 

He maintains strong links to central banks and international organizations. He was a frequent visitor at the International Monetary Fund, has held several visiting appointments at the Deutsche Bundesbank, and he was also a consultant in the ECB’s Financial Research Division, and for the World Bank. In 2007, Klaus was awarded an ECB Lamfalussy Fellowship. The policy relevance and impact of his research is reflected in citations in the IMF's Global Financial Stability Report, the Interim Report of the Independent Commission on Banking in the UK, and the World Bank's Global Development Report. The media has also paid attention to his research. His work featured in the Financial Times, The Guardian, The Telegraph, Rolling Stone Magazine, Huffington Post, TV, BBC, CNBC, Forbes, Handelsblatt, Financial Times Deutschland,
and other outlets. Recent research also featured in the Harvard Law School blog.

Klaus' research has attracted funding from the Leverhulme Trust, the British Academy, the Europlace Institute of Finance, the CAREFIN Research Center at Bocconi University, and, most recently, from the Fritz Thyssen Foundation.
