Cass student Mikael Homanen’s hard work has recently received attention from the Financial Times.

His timely PHD research project looks into how Financial institutions are affected by their involvement with controversial environmental projects. His paper focuses on the Dakota Access Pipeline and how Banks involved in the much debated project have been affected by lower bank deposits. In other words, customers appear to be boycotting these banks.

The Financial Times article goes on to explain that boycotting of financial institutions has a long history with more recent manifestations taking the form of customers staying away from Banks that finance projects without an environmental focus.

Congratulations to Mikael on producing a really interesting project. Read the full Financial Times article here.
