The Finance Lab at IIM Indore aims to provide the participants with the requisite prowess to support advanced applied research and aid mathematical and conceptual theories that develop innovative financial managers.
Equipped with 12 state of the art Thomson Reuters Eikon terminals, it gives participants access to comprehensive financial data and research from 1,600 eminent brokerage houses. Further, it provides trusted, timely and accurate content from exchanges and OTC traded markets across the world which is not available freely on the internet. This, coupled with the availability of both real time as well as deep historical information on one platform enhances the quality of student research.
The lab also works in tandem with other clubs involved in the areas of finance, investment and economics and helps bridge the gap between pedagogy and practice.
- Regular sessions are conducted to familiarize students with the basics of these terminals and to help them become well versed with the platform.
- Webinars are conducted by executives from Thomson Reuters to impart knowledge about advanced features of the platform.
- A series of workshops are floated as a part of the academic curriculum based on Equities and Portfolio Analytics, Multiple Asset Classes and Technical Analysis.
- The terminals are also used by FPM students and faculty members for research purposes.
By providing a platform extensively utilized by the financial industry including investment banks, equity research, asset management and trading desks, the Finance Lab at IIM Indore hopes to simulate a professional environment and thereby augment the quality of learning that it provides to its users.
