Barry Quinn, a senior research associate of the International Research Centre for Cooperative Finance (IRCCF) at HEC Montrealvisited this eclectic bilingual city twice as part of his sabbatical leave (Sept. 2016 & Aug. 2017).

With his financial aid from the Foundation he was able to provide evidence that enlightens the following research puzzles:
1.What business model features have engendered resilience in the Canadian financial system ?
2.Do credit union mergers enshrine membership benefits?
3.How does compliance with core supervisory standards set by the Basel Banking Supervision Committee  affect systemic risk in developed economies?
All his projects have important insights for the UK banking system which have a highly concentrated system of retail banks and a diffuse system of credit unions.
