Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to model the production of innovation in the financial sector firms and to quantify its impact on the productivity of the innovators. We use a sample of 118 British financial firms drawn from the Annual Respondents Database, 2005 and matched with the Fourth Community Innovation Survey, 2002 to 2004. The results show that consistently with what is found in other papers in this field, investment in R&D is not relevant for the production of innovation while collaboration with other firms and investment in training are. The productivity regressions show that only product innovation has a positive impact on the productivity of the innovators in the financial sector.
