Launched in April 2010, the CAMRI Investment Management & Trading Lab is the focal point of CAMRI’s teaching, training, and educational activities. Due to its stated research and educational mission in the Asian fund management context, it has a preponderance of financial databases, with particular focus on Asian securities. Located at Level 3 of the Mochtar Riady Building, the CAMRI Lab enhances the students’ portfolio management experience and hands-on activities in financial modeling and management. The Lab has 32 workstations, Bloomberg live feeds, live financial data tickers, MSCI Barra investment and risk management software modules, and various other trading and portfolio management software applications. There are at least three BBA and MBA finance modules in investment and risk management as well as various applied research seminars and executive lectures taught out of the CAMRI Lab currently. The aim is to enable participants in various NUS Business School programs to have first-hand experience and training with the best tools available to the professional investment community, and as a result, best prepare them for the investments, financial, and wealth management job markets.
