Biography

Professor Elizabeth Sheedy is a risk management expert based in the Department of Applied Finance. Since 2012 her research focus has been risk governance, culture and remuneration in financial institutions.

Elizabeth uses a range of research methods to build understanding of behaviour in financial services including: surveys, experiments, interviews as well as the econometric methods traditionally used by finance scholars. She has collaborated with scholars in other disciplines, including organisational psychology and experimental economics. This multi-methods, multi-disciplinary approach has produced a number of ground-breaking findings in the field, including development of the Macquarie University Risk Culture Scale. This psychometrically-validated survey instrument has been found to predict a range of behaviours important in this industry.

The quality of Elizabeth's work has been enhanced through industry collaboration. She has received funding or in-kind support from the Australia and New Zealand Institute for Insurance and Finance (ANZIIF), Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA), the Australian Securities and Investment Commission (ASIC), the Centre for International Finance and Regulation (CIFR), Dell EMC2, the Financial Services Council (FSC), the Financial Services Institute (FINSIA), the Insurance Council of Australia (ICA), Mercer Australia and 17 separate financial institutions.

This work has enabled Elizabeth to contribute to the policy debate on financial services misconduct, remuneration practices, enhancing financial services culture/conduct and related issues. She is a popular speaker at industry conferences and a regular media commentator.
