Tullett Prebon Information (TPI), a leading global provider of financial market data, today announced that it has entered into a corporate partnership with Cass Business School, City University London.
The partnership brings together one of the world’s top-ranking business schools with an established provider of global ‘over-the-counter’ (OTC) market data to financial institutions worldwide. Working in collaboration, the organisations will facilitate academic research in areas of mutual interest, which they will then make available to the wider industry. Students will also benefit from exposure to real world markets, leading to the further development of skills and talent across the sector.
Professor Steven Haberman, Dean of Cass Business School, commented: “By partnering with Cass, TPI will be joining a community of world class organisations that enjoy a range of benefits and services accessible to our Corporate Partners. Our collaborations are key to providing our students with the best opportunities for the future as well as building bridges with the world of business and providing practitioner expertise, perspective and input. We welcome TPI on board and look forward to a positive and productive collaboration.”
Students electing to conduct research into aspects of the OTC markets will have access to proprietary TPI data as well as its support teams. TPI’s data includes a wide range of OTC money market, foreign exchange, fixed income and derivative pricing from the global financial markets.
Frank Desmond, CEO at TPI, said: “This is an important collaboration between the worlds of academia and business. Research is always a highly-prized commodity and we look forward to fuelling studies that could well shape future industry developments. We also welcome the chance to work closely with the faculty and student body at Cass and offer our insights into the market. We’ll also offer the potential for students to participate in an internship program at TPI.”
Cass Business School is among the global elite of business schools that hold the gold standard of 'triple-crown' accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), the Association of MBAs (AMBA) and the European Quality Improvement System (EQUIS).
