Deborah spent eight years at Barclays, focussing on accounting and valuation research whilst working with her co-author Kenneth, and where they were one of the top ranked teams in their sector. In the later years, Deborah had broadened her remit to include research on corporate governance issues, including corporate taxation and regulation.
