dedication to training and research
I believe that the challenges to build a successful career goes through practical training to allow individuals to adapt to a rapidly changing environment.
The investment sector is being disrupted by an intense internal technology vortex. At Sigma, we have been creating new investment solutions for two decades, and our impact today is higher than ever.
the university of the future
The technology and social revolution does affect Universities too; innovative degrees, such as the MMF, which focus on learning for professional success are the way of the future.
GGSJ Centre is a far reaching initiative to bring the University network to new heights
“Luis Seco, a mathematics professor and director of RiskLab at the University of Toronto, was given Spain’s prestigious Caballero de la Orden del Merito Civil award Dec. 1. Seco was honoured for his application of mathematics to foresee economic cycles, a model that has been useful in a number of other countries, including Spain.”
In October 2007, RiskLab was the NSERC Synergy Award for Innovation. The award was delivered by Dr. Colin Carrie, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Industry, on behalf of the Honourable Jim Prentice, Minister of Industry and Minister responsible for the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), and by Dr. Suzanne Fortier, President of NSERC.

Risks are traditionally defined as the combination of probability and severity, but are actually characterized by additional factors. We believe the characteristics of risks include uncertainties, dynamics, dependence, clusterings and complexities, which motivate the utilization of various operational research tools. The objective of this issue is to survey the practice of using operational research tools in risk management, especially Asian risk management.
