CURRENT RESEARCH

Dr Igbekele Osinubi research focuses on the interplay of financial reporting, corporate financing decision, investment decision and corporate board. His first area of interest is the examination of corporate managers' response to external shocks or jolts that affects corporate reporting practice. One of his publications examines the response of corporate managers to new regulations that affect corporate reporting practice when a country adopts new accounting standard. His second area of interest focuses on corporate management's response to constraints in the financing environment. One of his publications in this area focuses on corporate use of trade credit policy in the presence of financing constraints and financial distress. He is currently examining whether new appointee directors can help mitigate agency issues arising from corporate use of excess cash to enhance efficient investment decision.
