Research interests

Bert Scholtens is also Finance Professor at the School of Management of the University of Saint Andrews, Scotland, UK. Currently, he is visiting professor at Panthéon-Sorbonne (Paris I), France.

Research interests

My research interests are in sustainable banking and finance, socially responsible investing, international financial intermediation, and energy finance. I try to advance theoretical insights next to conventional theories and concepts, in particular to the fields of sustainable banking and finance and socially responsible investing. Given the topics studied, I often work in a multidisciplinary setting.
