The Finance Research Lab at the School of Management, Mahindra University is a state-of-the-art facility designed to support cutting-edge research in finance. Our facilities are designed to support innovative and collaborative research in finance and to provide our researchers with the resources they need to advance the field. The Bloomberg terminal and NSE simulation software are two important tools available in the Finance Research Lab that help support research and analysis of financial markets and investments.

The Bloomberg terminal is a sophisticated financial data and news platform that provides users with real-time information and analysis on financial markets, investments, and economic news. It includes a wide range of features, such as news feeds, analytics, financial data, and trading tools, which are invaluable for researchers analysing financial markets and conducting investment research. The terminal also includes powerful analytical tools, such as charting and technical analysis, which can help researchers identify trends and patterns in financial data. Researchers can also use Bloomberg to perform financial modelling and to test investment strategies.

The NSE simulation software is a virtual trading platform that is designed to simulate a real trading environment in the National Stock Exchange (NSE), providing users with access to real-time market data, news feeds, and trading tools. Users can create and manage a virtual portfolio, execute trades, and monitor their performance in real-time. This software provides a hands-on experience for researchers and students to practice trading strategies and test their investment hypotheses in a simulated environment before investing real money. It provides a risk-free environment to experiment with different trading strategies and to learn from successes and failures.

Together, these tools are critical to supporting research and analysis of financial markets, investment strategies, and economic trends. The Finance Research Lab provides access to these tools to ensure that our researchers and students have the necessary resources to conduct innovative research and make informed investment decisions.
