The Risk Management Centre (RMC) is a research centre focusing on risk management and disaster management under a common platform of scholarly research and technical expertise. We are unique in the sense that we are the first of a kind in the region to address risk and disaster management issues under one roof.
The RMC focuses on risk management covering various aspects at the micro and institutional levels of market and industry risk, their modelling and management. Disaster management is the second-arm of the centre which involves monitoring and managing natural as well as man-made disasters such as flooding, famine, health epidemics, political violence, etc. These two-arms of research on risk and disaster are founded on and share the common platform in the RMC, which comprises various important databases and a pool of scholarly and industrial experts for the monitoring and analysis of risk and disaster in the East and Central African region.
The RMC is established within the School of Finance and Applied Economics (SFAE) at Strathmore University for the purpose of research, education, and outreach regarding risk and disaster management. As a centre for risk and disaster management, RMC provides information, resources, expertise and networking opportunities to facilitate faculty and student exchange of research ideas as well as providing services to the research community within SFAE, Strathmore University, industry as well as the wider community.
Strathmore Centre for Value Investing, SCVI, is a research centre in the School Of Finance and Applied Economics. It aims to foster investment research aimed at uncovering value for investors in undervalued companies and sectors. Generally in these sectors, information asymmetry is prevalent, and opportunities to unlock value exist. SCVI aims to develop solid criteria for obtaining reasonable and consistent returns commensurate with risk using fundamental analysis. We emphasize value rather than trending and momentum short term strategies.
