Institute for Global Asset and Risk Management Launches Educational Portal

The Institute for Global Asset and Risk Management (INGARM) is launching an online library and continuing education center featuring current research on investment management, risk management, economic trends and regulatory frameworks.

Garry B. Crowder, INGARM Director, said, “Our goal is to support a global education and research initiative that provides academic research and intelligent discourse on current economic, regulatory and market issues. The text books or reference materials often used by regulators and the judiciary are several years out of date simply as a result of the time lag in publishing. As a consequence, decision makers are establishing policy based on outdated market or business models rather than on the current reality of financial markets.”

INGARM is open to accepting research, white papers and books from academics, market participants and industry watchers for inclusion on its site. All contributions should be sent to: Kathryn Wilkens, Ph.D., Chief Operating Officer, Institute for Global Asset and Risk Management, 29 S. Pleasant Street, Amherst, MA 01002, or email to:
