Though case study based research is not uncommon in managerial and organizational accounting studies, case based research in the field of finance is pretty unusual. Must be recognized that the boundary area between the companies’ executives, the managers of the financial funding institutions, the expert’s analysis, and the financial press; is the source of many discussions in the related fields of financial management, financial reporting, and even concerning the functioning of the financial markets. It should be noted that accounting and finance academics operate primarily as one academic body in the U.K. The accounting academics have long been sympathetic to a qualitative research tradition. In addition, within a European context, many research traditions are evident. This has meant that there has been a supportive climate in the U.K. and Europe for a qualitative approach to finance and accounting related research. The purpose of this guide is to encourange researchers in the financial and the management fields to use case study basis on their work, showing the advantages of it, and to provide some tips on how this could be better executed.
Keywords: financial qualitative research, case study basis.
