BANKING AND CREDIT NEWS-June 2, 2016-MIT Center for Finance and Policy renamed in recognition of alumnus


MIT Sloan School of Management has received a gift from alumnus Bennett (Ben) W. Golub to support the MIT Center for Finance and Policy, and the school plans to rename the center the Bennett W. Golub Center for Finance and Policy (GCFP), the school said.

Dr. Golub is senior managing director and chief risk officer of BlackRock, the global investment and risk management firm. The mission of the GCFP is to serve as a catalyst for innovative, cross-disciplinary and nonpartisan research and educational initiatives that address the unique challenges facing governments in their role as financial institutions and as regulators of the financial system.

The Golub Center focuses on three broad research areas: government financial institutions, financial regulatory policies, and public risk management, including the study of systemic risk. The center provides resources for scholars to conduct innovative research and policy analysis in an objective, quantitative, and non-partisan manner. Through its research, educational and outreach activities, it seeks to provide greater transparency about financial policy, innovative educational materials and programs, and new venues for discussion, with the goal of providing regulators, policymakers, and other public-sector stakeholders with tools and ideas that will elevate the quality of public-policy debate and decisions.
