Feb 6 2014 – FinRisk & UMD MFA Young Professionals Event – Seeking Financial Resilience

FinRisk MFA Young Professionals Event - Managing Financial Resilience

FinRisk MFA Young Professionals Event – Seeking Financial Resilience

We are pleased to again be able to successfully co-organize a Young Professionals Series event on “Seeking Financial Resilience”.  The event, held last Thursday at the University of Maryland Robert H. Smith School of Business campus at College Park, clearly drew strong interest from many students from the school.

Nick Kiritz, the event chair led and moderated the event; which covered an interesting thinking model for “seeking financial resilience”.  Graham Strong, Faculty Advisor on System Analytics at the Carnegie-Mellon University shared with the audience the framework for addressing much of the complexities that go towards seeking resilience from adverse shocks.

While targeted at Young Professionals at the event, much of what Graham shared would have much following also among seasoned professionals and risk experts alike.  In a complex world with so many moving parts, the thinking model to cut through the noise and complexities to map factors significant to building financial resilience is certainly insightful and have much for everyone to glean from.

A heavy but very informative and interesting coverage of the key points.  I would certainly look forward to having Graham expand or share a similar discussion in a penal format with peers.  This is an important subject of great relevance, as we all grapple to unravel through the noise to better manage internal and external shocks, at a macro level and perhaps more interestingly, to deal with challenges we face at each institution.

Steven Lee, Chair of the FinRisk Founding Committee also shared with the audience on some of the plans that FinRisk has for Young Professionals for 2014 and beyond, and encourage all the students and young professionals to engage and participate actively to benefit from some of these initiatives.

Below are some pictures taken to share some of the special moments at the event.  A big thank you to all the volunteers and helpers at FinRisk and the UMD Master of Finance Association (MFA).  Look forward to seeing you again and more others at our future events.
