New investment lab for finance classes

In December IE inaugurated its Trading Room to better address market related assignments such as Portfolio Management, Investment Game, Fixed Income, Derivatives, Equity/Asset Valuation, Financial Programming, Equity Research, FX Markets.

Equipped with Bloomberg, FactSet, WONDA, EVA Dimensions, Thompson, Matlab, Reuters, TTR & Zoologic and other technologies, this facility has one of the top collections of analytical tools for a university/business school´s investment lab in the world.
The Trading Room will be as well the home to many finance classes of Masters in Finance, MBA and other IE programs which require doing analytical research on security pricing, brokerage, portfolio risk and performance analytics, and other analytics such as stocks, bonds, commodities, options and futures, and currencies.

As Leila Guerra, Director of Innovation and Development mentions: “The experience we have been living in the first 2 months running the lab were very satisfying. Not only finance classes have been running inside the lab, also a lot of individual students from all programs have been asking for permission to use to lab on an individual basis and proposed interesting projects such as creating a real portfolio. Users have expressed their absolute satisfaction with this new acquisition.”
The trading room is therefore a perfect learning tool for immersion into real world.
