Personal profile

Research interests

Dr Kokkinis' research interests include corporate governance, bank corporate governance, and financial regulation. His monograph Corporate Law and Financial Instability (Routledge, 2017) critiques the corporate law framework for UK banks from a prudential regulatory perspective and argues for the need to reform banks' corporate objective to prioritise the financial sustainability of the entity. More recently, he published two articles on the Journal of Corporate Law Studies, the first on the bonus cap on bank managers' variable remuneration, and the second on employee participation in corporate governance, as well as an article on the Journal of Financial Regulation that examines the challenges posed by non-performing loans from a corporate governance perspective. His Banking Law textbook with Routledge, an advanced text, co-authored with Dr Andrea Miglionico, is expected to be published in early 2021. Dr Kokkinis is currently working on several collaborative research projects including: (a) Examining the regulatory suspensions that have resulted from the COVID-19 pandemic crisis, their implications and the problem of continuing reliance on excessive levels of debt to address crises, with Iris Chiu and Andrea Miglionico. (b) Mapping the opportunities and challenges for financial regulation posed by digital technologies and RegTech - forthcoming book chapter, with Christian Twigg-Flesner. (c) Assessing the operation Senior Managers Regime & Certification Regime and its impact on the quality of supervision of financial firms, with Anat Keller. (d) Revisiting the theory of corporate law and large socially important corporations to identify core principles of justice applicable to this field and provide an agenda for its future development, with Konstantinos Sergakis.
