Giving to NUS Business School

Investing in Research and Programme

Centre for Asset Management Research & Investments (CAMRI) was founded with the aim to accomplish a state-of-the-art educational academy and a hands-on training laboratory for our budding financial and fund managers.

CAMRI has hosted numerous public lectures, applied finance seminars, forums and conferences, as well as eminent visiting professors in the field of asset management. Our Investment Management & Trading Laboratory is the focal point of CAMRI’s teaching, training, and educational activities. Well-equipped with state-of-the-art software, databases, and applications for asset management research, portfolio management, and financial risk management, our Lab can rival the best fund houses’ investment management and trading facilities.

We aim to provide our students with first-hand experience and training with the best tools so as to better prepare them for the challenging and exciting financial industries in Singapore and Asia. Support us in providing the best training for budding financial and fund managers. In doing so, we enhance and improve the quality of Singapore’s position as Asia’s principal investment management hub, as well as support the growth of its financial services sector.

We have a number of giving opportunities at CAMRI, and would be happy to discuss the mission of each giving opportunity. Naming opportunities are also available. With your help, we can do so much more.
