Examples of topics in banking, finance, investment, and risk that you can investigate through HBSWK are the effects of capital requirements on regulated and unregulated banks [banking], rationality or irrationality among investors [finance], quantitative versus qualitative risk management [risk management]. Harvard Business School Working Knowledge (HBSWK) offers a broad range of banking, finance, investment and risk topics with links to synopses of papers and (at least in some cases) to the actual papers.

Questia also offers a topic search that provides research topics in banking, finance, investment and risk. Again, you access topic ideas derived from actual papers or books published, but your free linking options are limited to previews and/ or overview synopses of the publications. This should be no problem and sufficient for generating research topic ideas for your work. Some examples of topics from Questia are the merger of investment banks and commercial banks [banking and investment], fiscal demands springing from changing demographic needs in Asian Pacific economies [finance], evaluating credit risk retention rules relevant to the residential mortgage market [risk management in banking].
