Activities

Build quality data for emerging market research:

Investing with a long-term, global perspective - not limited to public companies

The Lab’s research agenda will build on its access to sources of data (for example, data from Indian and Asian securities markets and the availability of analytical expertise, with the aim of making available insights likely to be useful not only to institutional investors in India and Asia but also to institutional investors in developed markets.

The Lab’s focus will be on investing. Investment denotes an activity undertaken over a longer time-horizon than trading, sometimes with a larger set of objectives. The best companies do not confine themselves to a home-bias and adapt to capture opportunities on a global basis.

The Trading Laboratory will advance global investment theory by helping developed markets understand emerging markets and helping emerging markets build global investment portfolios.

Like newly qualified doctors undergoing supervised training in a residency programme, students working in the Trading Laboratory will learn the craft of finance hands-on, from the selection of individual investments to the management of a multi-faceted portfolio.
