The best of both worlds - Funds@Work is increasing its exposure to leading universities

 

Being a boundary spanner from a network analytic view has many advantages

One can utilize the wealth of rigorous theoretical research and apply it to real life phenomena in a relevant manner. There is nothing more practical than a good theory.

Both our academic involvement and practical consulting and research work profit from it as we can use insights from our involvement with academia in the development of our innovative analytic tools and methodologies at Funds@Work but at the same time make academics our data and application examples available to make theory even more tangible which is great in showing students real life applications.

Our application of social network analysis to the investment industry is quite unique globally and we set a great value on being both rigorous and relevant at the same time. Here are some selected insights into our lecture series "in just 2012" to transfer our knowledge:
