Dr. Chris Robinson joined the Finance group at SAS in 2004 after 21 years at the Schulich School of Business. Chris has taught introductory and advanced personal finance, financial statement analysis, ethics, security valuation, insurance and introductory finance at SAS. His research spans many fields, including personal finance, retirement planning, corporate governance, financial statement analysis, critical and alternative perspectives on finance and accounting, regulation of payday lending, dividend policy of corporations and case study research of corporate capital budgeting and environmental decision-making. In 2011 he was named one of the inaugural Fellows of the Financial Planning Standards Council for his contributions to financial planning in Canada.

Dr. Robinson has served on the editorial boards of Financial Services Review, Financial Counselling and Planning, and International Review of Financial Analysis. Chris served as a contributing editor of The Financial Post, World Accounting Report, and International Accounting Bulletin during the 1980s. Dr. Robinson’s two most notable co-authored publications are Denys Ivan Robinson (born 1987) and Nicolas Sergio Robinson (born 1995). With Professor Kwok Ho of SAS, he co-authored Personal Financial Planning (Captus Press, fifth edition 2012, with other editions in French for Canada, and in the US, the Netherlands and China). His most recent journal publications have appeared in Business and Society Review, Journal of Corporate Finance, Financial Analysts Journal and Financial Services Review. Dr. Robinson received his PhD in finance from the University of Toronto in 1985. Chris became a Chartered Accountant in 1977 (title converted to Charterer Professional Accountant because of a merger of the professional organisations in 2012), and a Certified Financial Planner in 1997. Chris would rather hike, cycle canoe or ski, than attend committee meetings.
