The William Garrard Reed Finance Center
The services offered in the William Garrard Reed Finance Center enhance the experiences of students in finance studies as well as those enrolled in economics, accounting and policy courses. The Reed Center gives students in all disciplines an opportunity to view live stock, bond, futures, currency and options markets, and the interactions among them.
The Reed Center also exposes students and faculty to research and analysis tools used by investment bankers, financial planners, finance executives and securities analysts. These tools, which include FactSet, Morningstar Direct, Global Insight and Wharton Research Database (WRDS), help students better understand the financial world, and how to create and employ financial data. The University Recognition Program of the CFA Institute recognizes the revamped finance curriculum and the center’s CFA-related activities.
