Dr Tony Moore is Lecturer in Finance at the ICMA Centre. He is Programme Director of the MSc in Financial Regulation, a part-time degree for practicing regulators offered in collaboration with the Financial Conduct Authority. He convenes the modules ‘Stakeholders and the Business of Finance’ and the Research Project/Dissertation options for the MSc and ‘Topics in Finance’ for third-year undergraduates. He is currently programme director of the MA by Research in Economic History in the Centre for Economic History and has taught for the Graduate Centre for Medieval Studies and the Department of History.

Previously he worked as Research Associate on two historical finance projects directed by Professors Adrian Bell and Chris Brooks. The first (2007-2010), funded by the ESRC examined the early sovereign debt market – focusing on the relationships between the Three Edwards (kings of England 1272-1377) and a succession of Italian merchant societies that served as ‘bankers to the Crown’. The second (2011-2014), funded by the Leverhulme Trust, investigated the early history of the Foreign Exchange market in medieval Europe. For more information on these projects, see Before joining the ICMA Centre, he completed a BA in History, an MPhil in Medieval History and a PhD at the University of Cambridge and worked on a one-year research project at the University of Sheffield.

His chief research areas are the history of finance and medieval history – and especially the history of finance during the Middle Ages. He is series editor of Palgrave Studies in the History of Finance. Other interests include contemporary perceptions of finance, the social utility of finance and the history of regulation.
