Asymptotix and the Scottish Financial Risk Academy
Asymptotix is a member of the newly established Scottish Financial Risk Academy.
The Scottish Financial Risk Academy (SFRA) was established in April 2010 by a consortium of founder members led by the Maxwell Institute for Mathematical Sciences. It is funded by a grant of £335,000 from the Scottish Funding Council and contributions by founder members.
The consortium of founder members of the SFRA comprises the Maxwell Institute, Scottish Financial Enterprise, The Actuarial Profession, Aberdeen Asset Management, Barrie & Hibbert, and Lloyds Banking Group.
The SFRA runs a series of Knowledge Exchange activities designed to improve the interaction between the academic sector and the financial services industry. These include biannual Risk Colloquia, Knowledge Transfer Workshops, placements for MSc and PhD students, and postgraduate course modules taught by industry professionals.
