Baylor to Dedicate Financial Markets Center January 12

11.01.2005


The Southwest Securities Financial Markets Center will allow graduate students and senior finance majors hands-on learning in the truest sense of the word as they manage one of the largest student-run portfolios in the nation – currently worth $6 million – from the new facility.



Baylor University will officially dedicate this world-class investment facility at 2:00 p.m., Wednesday, January 12, at the Hankamer School of Business, located at the corner of 5th Street and Speight Avenue on the Baylor campus.

KWBU-TV will provide a mult-box for media to receive a clean audio feed of the ceremony.


Participating in the ceremony will be Baylor president, Dr. Robert B. Sloan, Jr.; Dr. Terry Maness, dean of the Hankamer School of Business; Dr. J.T. Rose, chair, Finance, Insurance & Real Estate department; Alan Roseman, a graduate student in accounting from Tyler, Texas; Susan Etheredge, managing director of the Center; and Dr. Bill Reichenstein, professor of investments. Also attending will be major donors Don and Ruth Buchholz and Philip M. Dorr.

The opening of the facility marks the beginning of a new era in the Finance program at the Hankamer School of Business: the Portfolio Practicum class, which started in 2001, will be taken to a new level with this state-of-the-art financial center. The Center is equipped with leading edge technology replicating the equipment found in the nation’s top investment firms and financial institutions.

“This new facility, coupled with the Philip M. Dorr & Alumni Endowed Investment Fund, is a very mission-driven program,” Dean Terry Maness said. “Our mission calls for us to engage students in active learning - this program really does that. You can read about it and you can write papers, but until you are actually managing real money and being held accountable for it - there’s just no comparison.”

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

Im Focus: Using graphene to create quantum bits

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.

In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...
