MINTO Andrea

Andrea Minto studied Law and Economics of Financial Institutions at Ca' Foscari University of Venice, Italy. He pursued a PhD in "European Contract Law", curriculum "Economic Law - Corporate and Banking Law" at Ca' Foscari University. During his PhD, he visited CASS Business School, City University London (Visiting Research Scholar) and the European Banking Authority (EBA). Meanwhile, he also worked as Head of the Compliance Function at the Legal Department  of the Cooperative Bank Association.

The PhD was followed at the same University by Post-doc Fellowship (European Commission programme 2007-2013 NSRF – strategy for the Cohesion Policy of the European Union) and since 2014 he has been appointed adjunct professor of banking and financial market law at the department of Economics, Ca’ Foscari University of Venice.

In 2014 he was selected by the Bank for International Settlements – Basel Committee of Banking Supervisors to undertake a research on the effectiveness of the Three-lines-of-defense model at financial institutions (under the premises of the BIS Research Fellowship).

Since November 2014, Andrea works as assistant professor in Law & Economics at Universiteit Utrecht, Department of Law, Economics and governance. His domain of expertise extends to Economic Law, Competition Law, European and Comparative Financial Regulation, Company and Business Law, Banking Law. The PhD thesis and some of his articles revolve around corporate governance issues, with a specific focus on what makes banks special in that respect. He is a member of various research groups on corporate governance, such as the European Corporate Governance Institute (ECGI – Brussels), the Virtus Global Centre for Corporate Governance - Department of International Economics, Ukrainian Academy of Banking of the National Bank of Ukraine, and the Danish research project “Regulating Financial Business and Services” at Syddansk Universitet – Denmark.

Lately, his research interests embraced the role of behaviourally informed regulation (i.e. nudging, empowerment), in countering cultural deficiencies at banks (docile board members, little group interaction, unsupportive communication climate), on one hand, and the tension between technological innovation and financial stability, on the other. On May 2016, Andrea was appointed Honorary Fellow of the Asian Institute of International Financial Law at Hong Kong University (HKU) in order to share his findings on these two research strands.
