Overview

Profile

Lecturer in Finance

Danial Hemmings joined Bangor Business School in January 2015 as a Lecturer in Finance. His current research interests focus on the impact of corporate communication choices on investors’ perceptions of value and credibility of management. His PhD examined the effects of stock hyping on firms’ market values prior to follow-on equity offerings. In particular, Danial utilizes computer assisted text analysis techniques to examine the information content of corporate narrative disclosures, as well as their potential behavioural consequences. For example, a current Bangor Business School research project in which Danial is involved finds that investors are more likely to endorse excessive CEO pay when compensation disclosures are easier to read and process.
