The University of Macau’s (UM) Faculty of Business Administration (FBA) and Thomson Reuters today announced the launch of the Thomson Reuters Trading Room, at a special opening ceremony held at the university. The Thomson Reuters Trading Room can provide Thomson Reuters Eikon terminal access for up to 80 users, and is equipped with analytics tools, and real-time data and financial information to facilitate the faculty’s various teaching and research activities. During the ceremony, UM Vice Rector (Student Affairs) Prof Haydn Chen; FBA Dean Prof Jacky So; Thomson Reuters Managing Director, Financial & Risk, North Asia, James Mirfin; and Thomson Reuters Sales Director, Hong Kong and Macao, Cecily Luk, rang the opening bell in the trading room. Prof Chen said in his welcome speech that an increasing number of laboratories have been established at UM, adding that the new lab will not only enhance the research capabilities of UM scholars, but will also provide a good learning environment for UM students. Prof Chen also expressed special thanks to Thomson Reuters Corporation Pte Ltd for its continuous support to UM. He added that he believes the new trading room will provide UM students with hands-on experience in a world-class simulated trading environment and bring them closer to real-world financial markets. ‘The new partnership with UM bridges academic and professional environments, and strengthens our commitment to fostering innovation and collaboration at every level of the financial ecosystem,’ said Mirfin. ‘With access to Eikon in Thomson Reuters Trading Room, students are given the opportunity to gain in-depth knowledge of financial markets, prepare for professional life with industry-standard tools, and stay ahead of the game.’ ‘Thomson Reuters continues to be a leader in the Macao market, combining industry expertise with innovative technology to deliver critical information to leading decision makers across financial institutions, governments, universities, media and corporate enterprises. As the Answer Company, Thomson Reuters combines intelligence, technology and human expertise to help customers find trusted answers,’ he added. After the opening ceremony, Mirfin gave a lecture titled ‘The Findustrial Revolution’. The lecture attracted nearly 200 people, including UM faculty members and students, students from local high schools, government officials, and professionals from local banks, companies, and other organisations. In his lecture, Mirfin discussed the future of fintech innovation and how financial services firms are increasingly turning to cutting-edge technology as a way of connecting with customers more efficiently and conveniently.
