This research laboratory conducts joint university-industry research initiatives in the area of risk management

RiskLab Toronto is part of an international network that addresses the financial sector’s need for cutting edge research as well as for highly qualified personnel.

 

The main objective is to achieve leadership in the development of projects in the financial sector to support institutions and universities.

Faculty, postdoctoral fellows and graduate students can develop an interaction with practitioners from financial institutions in a way which may not be possible through more traditional academic programs.

 

Through industry partnerships projects with banks, pension funds, asset managers and technology companies, Risklab Toronto provides solutions in many aspects of the risk management spectrum.

 

RiskLab researchers have conducted research in market risk management, credit risk management, liquidity risk management and asset management.

Risklab Toronto started in 1996 as a research laboratory at the University of Toronto in partnership with Algorithmics Inc.

 

The Government of Canada recognized the effective collaboration between Algorithmics Inc and the University of Toronto and awarded   the Synergy Awards for Innovation to Risklab Toronto in 2007.

 

RiskLabs Around the World

The first RiskLab was created in 1994 at Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule Zürich in Zurich, Switzerland. In 1996, another one was created independently at the University of Toronto, this time sponsored by the private company Algorithmics Incorporated.

 

Shortly afterwards, and also in partnership with Algorithmics Inc, others were created in Munich (1997), at Cornell University (1998), at Cambridge University (1998), at the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid (2000), and at the Cyprus International Institute of Management, in Nicosia (2001). Risklab China Research Center was also created in 2006. Further, in 2013, a Finnish section of Risklab was independently created at Åbo Akademi University in Turku and Arcada University of Applied Sciences in Helsinki. In 2010, growing out of the RiskLab international network, RiskLabs built the strategic alliance named RiskLab Global. The ethos of all existing RiskLabs is a fusion of academic research, industrial innovation and governmental oversight in financial risk management.
