The Consortium for Data Analytics in Risk (CDAR) is delighted to announce a new founding member: the Southwestern University of Finance and Economics (SWUFE) based in Chengdu, Sichuan, China. SWUFE joins a growing network of faculty and researchers from UC Berkeley, Stanford, State Street, and financial management firms and technology development companies large and small.

SWUFE’s membership in CDAR will involve collaborative research projects applying data analytics methodologies to questions and problems in finance today, and student and faculty exchanges between our two institutions. We welcome SWUFE to CDAR, and look forward to a long-lasting, productive relationship.
