Networks of Financial Careers: What can careers tell us about financial market activities and knowledge in finance?
The talk outlines how data on individual careers of financial experts - in this case collateral managers - can be used to generate insights into financial market activities and knowledge creation. Where available, career data enables us to explore phenomena that are otherwise difficult to access. Tracing careers opens up new ways for understanding how knowledge practices travel and solidify within a new financial market; that is, who are the key organisations in which knowledge is created and experiences are made and how do flows between these agents stabilise “how things are done”. In this talk I will focus on the data gathering itself, including sourcing the data (public data versus private data) and ethical/legal issues that may be relevant. In the latter part I will discuss some result from the pilot study based on 25 collateral management firms yielding approximately 500 careers.
