    Special Issue on Financial Innovation


    Financial innovation is the act of creating new financial instruments as well as new financial technologies, institutions, and markets. There are three categories of innovation—institutional, product, and process. Institutional innovations relate to the creation of new types of financial firms such as specialist credit card firms. Product innovation relates to new products such as derivatives, securitized assets, and foreign currency mortgages. Process innovations relate to new ways of doing financial business, including online banking and telephone banking.


    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles on financial innovation. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

    • Financial innovations
    • Innovation and firm performance
    • Product innovation
    • Institutional innovations
    • Innovative market

    • Futures, options, and derivatives
    • Innovative financial strategies
