Yes. There is actually an annual R in Finance conference hosted in Chicago (http://www.rinfinance.com/agenda/).

Additionally, there are a wide variety of R packages (i.e. stockPortfolio and quantmod) developed specifically for finance. You can find a list of such packages at http://cran.r-project.org/web/views/Finance.html.
