Published: 9 March 2015

A team from Seven Investment Management (7IM), including the co-founder and Senior Directors, recently spent a day at the University of Southampton in talks with members of the Centre for Risk Research (CRR), exploring opportunities for future collaborations on financial risk-related research projects.

7IM is a major city–based company who deliver investment solutions to Professional Advisors and their clients. They have a reputation for delivering great service, strong performance and managing risk, resulting in them looking after £6.5 billion in assets.

Following on from a meeting earlier in the year at the 7IM London offices, the 7IM team travelled to Southampton where they met with Professors Johnnie Johnson (the Director of the CRR), Ming-Chien Sung and Frank Mcgroarty and Dr’s Tiejun Ma, Patrick O’Sullivan, Richard Mcgee, Peter Fraser-Mackenzie and Juan Carlos Moreno Paredes.

The 7IM team were impressed by the multi-disciplinary skills of the CRR team and the extensive research resources of the CRR, including prestigious financial databases, the ability to access facilities across various institutional/University services, such as the Hartley Library, open data, Bloomberg trading suits and a range of other physical facilities offered across the campus. 7IM were also impressed by the CRR’s research computing infrastructure which has the capability to integrate the extremely powerful University super-computer with CRR’s Big Databases and the state-of-art Cloud servers to efficiently perform challenging financial risk analysis research experiments.

It was clear from the discussions that the unique, multi-disciplinary approach to risk analysis adopted by CRR chimed extremely well with the philosophy of 7IM, and the two organisations are now hoping to develop a long-term relationship.
