Alexis Stenfors

I have been a Senior Lecturer at Portsmouth Business School since January 2014 and work within the Economics and Finance subject group. I have 15 years of experience from the foreign exchange and interest rate derivatives markets, having been a trader at HSBC, Citi, Crédit Agricole and Merrill Lynch.

In 2009, I returned to academia to do research on the LIBOR and completed my doctoral thesis with the title ‘Determining the LIBOR: A Study of Power and Deception’ in 2013. I have also held teaching positions at SOAS (University of London) and Olin Business School (Washington University in St. Louis).

My recent research on benchmark manipulation has been published in journals such as the Journal of International Financial Markets, Institutions & Money and the Review of Political Economy. I am also the author of ‘Barometer of Fear: An Insider’s Account of Rogue Trading and the Greatest Banking Scandal in History’ (London: Zed Books, May 2017).
