Research in Banking and Finance in an Uncertain World 
Current and Emerging Research in Banking and Finance 


Research in banking and finance is being profoundly shaped by recent crises and events. This paper offers a synopsis of the trends in global uncertainty over the past twenty years and provides a review of the most recent literature for each of the emerging topics in banking covered in the six studies that are included in our Review of Corporate Finance Special Issue. Our main findings suggest that the challenging scenarios posed by new geopolitics, high uncertainty and rising inflation will provide new research opportunities on a variety of relevant themes, from how to sustain bank performance and resilience to the need to identify the bank business models of the future. The paper also emphasises how, going forward, more research is needed on the disruptive role and risks posed by FinTechs and on the critical and unique role of banks in the transition to green finance.
