Asserting that the qualitative research paradigm is entrenched in the social sciences as a discipline in its own right, this book brings together finance and qualitative research to encourage researchers to expand their respective bodies of knowledge. In doing so, it promotes a synergy of insights through the mixing of perspectives.

The book first covers the fundamentals of qualitative research including design, implementation and analysis. Chapters then address important questions regarding ethics and the publication process, while considering the underlying theme of reaching and respecting your audience and focusing on what editors are looking for. The final part presents real-world examples from a diverse and international range of authors, covering key topics including the use of digital tools, ethnographic research design, indigenous investment, and the human impact of financial loss.

Providing a comprehensive guide for finance researchers on how to produce impactful qualitative research, this book is a vital resource for teaching as well as research advice for academics and students. It is also ideal for those in related fields including accounting, economics and actuarial studies.
Critical Acclaim
‘This book is essential reading for any researcher using qualitative methods in finance. Filled with insights from leading researchers, the book is broken down into three major sections. The first covers best practice in qualitative research techniques, followed by a detailed guide to publishing your work. The final section is a series of 10 chapters, each written by experts in their fields and each representing an exemplar case study in qualitative research. I highly recommend this outstanding book to all finance researchers and I look forward to seeing the positive impacts its lessons will have on future research.’
– Bruce Vanstone, Bangor University, UK

‘If research in finance is limited to quantitative methods it can only ever offer partial solutions. Qualitative methods allow researchers to dive below the surface and shed light on the hidden dimensions of human behaviour and decision-making. This book details the invaluable role of qualitative methods in finance research and illustrates its ability to marry numbers and narrative to give a complete picture of the complex financial landscape.’
– Kathy Walsh, University of Technology Sydney, Australia

‘How to Conduct Qualitative Research in Finance puts a marker down. It is a guidebook of the possibilities of extending the idea of focusing on people. . . this book provides a great starting point to pursue this agenda.’
– From the Foreword by John R. Graham and Campbell R. Harvey
