Building a Hub for Financial Knowledge, Innovation and Learning
 

Drawing on our strength as a centre for knowledge and intelligence on Asia, MAS actively promotes the establishment of regional financial training and research facilities in Singapore. In July 2005, we launched the Programme on Risk Management and Financial Innovation to catalyse increased research and training in these areas. We will co-fund the establishment of world-class research and training institutes and programmes, and encourage multi-disciplinary research and greater industry-academia collaboration, so as to develop Singapore as a centre of excellence in risk management and financial innovation.

In June 2006, the National University of Singapore (NUS) announced that it is partnering with the Haas School of Business at the University of California, Berkeley to jointly establish the Berkeley-NUS Risk Management Institute (RMI) at NUS. RMI will generate and disseminate leading-edge knowledge on risk management through financial research, executive education and certification programmes. Going forward, MAS will continue to work with academia and industry partners to enhance financial research, education and training, so as to support the next phase of growth of Singapore’s financial centre.
