About Professor Ross Buckley - Scientia Professor, Professor, King & Wood Mallesons Chair of International Finance Law, UNSW
Ross Buckley joined the Faculty of Law and UNSW as a Professor in 2007, and was appointed a Scientia Professor and to the King & Wood Mallesons Chair in International Finance Law in 2013.
His current research focus is on FinTech and RegTech in developed markets, and on how best to regulate the delivery of financial services over mobile devices in developing countries. On the former, I work with three international co-authors, and on the latter lead a team of four researchers on this project, funded by the only ARC Linkage grant awarded in law nationally in 2015. We are sponsored and very well supported on this project by the United Nations Capital Development Fund.
From 2013 to 2015, he held a Discovery Senior Outstanding Researcher Award -- a professorial fellowship from the Australian Research Council -- focused on regulatory measures to increase the resilience and stability of financial systems: Australia's, East Asia's and the international system.
He has led seven major multi-year research projects -- four of which have been funded by the ARC. He co-edits two book series for Wolters Kluwer of The Hague on international banking and finance law and international trade law.
Ross consults to banks, finance houses and government departments. In the U.S. to the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Comptroller of the Currency and the Department of Justice; and closer to home to the Asian Development Bank, the Australian Tax Office, the Indonesian Ministry of Finance and the Vietnamese Ministry of Trade. I began His career practising banking and finance law in Australia, Hong Kong and on Wall Street with Davis Polk & Wardwell, and am admitted to practise law in Australia and New York.
His current focus is on (i) FinTech and RegTech in developed markets and (ii) the enabling regulation of digital financial services in developing nations.
