Burridge Center for Finance
Educating and preparing responsible investment professionals is more critical today than ever before, and the Burridge Center is committed to improving and sharing the practice of investments and finance. The Center develops and supports programs, resources and events that enhance the student experience, engage our alumni, support faculty research and provide a forum for the exchange of ideas with investment practitioners.
Launched in 1997 by a landmark gift from CU-Boulder alumnus and CU Foundation trustee Richard Burridge Sr., the Burridge Center for Finance has fostered research and dialogue on issues affecting money managers, their clients, and securities markets.
Each year, the Burridge Center combines the resources of leading academics, practitioners, and regulators for a conference at which pressing issues for security investors and money managers are debated. In addition to conferences, the Burridge Center supports securities-related research by funding student and faculty research, presentations, working papers, and publications that inform and influence professional practice and regulation in securities markets. The Center also provides critical financial and logistic support for the training of investment-management students. The Center provides Leeds students, faculty, staff, and the broader community access to the leading-edge ideas, knowledge, and resources to ensure the health of tomorrow’s economy and the financial security of tomorrow’s communities.
