London's Coventry University Implements Integrated Capital Market Simulator From CapitalWave

The Trading Floor Facility of Coventry University's London Campus Is Now Equipped With a State-of-the-Art Trading Simulator From CapitalWave, Providing Students With a Learning, Principles and Techniques Used by Corporate Financial Institutions

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - November 22, 2010) - CapitalWave, a leading provider of training solutions for the capital markets and finance community, today announced it has entered into an agreement with Coventry University (UK) and implemented its new capital market simulator, CapitalCMS, at the university's London Campus.

The simulator is delivered via a 25 station high-tech trading floor and allows interactive teaching of complex financial investments, including Equities, Fixed Incomes, Commodities and Energy. Lecturers are able to filter out market noise during training sessions, focus in on certain products and simulate specific market conditions, such as a flash crash or Black Monday.

"To be able to offer our students the latest trading floor technology that exposes them to the pressures and consequences of financial trading, and prepares them for real-life business situations is key for us in delivering the real business experience," says Janet Hannah, Director of Coventry University London Campus.

Hands-on learning allows students to assess the risks associated with trading and how to respond to different market conditions. CapitalWave's software is used by many Corporate Financial Institutions to train their own employees. Built on modern architecture, and the only training platform using broker ladders, CapitalCMS is able to emulate real trading under a tightly controlled environment in both open and closed training facilities. 

"We are thrilled to work with Coventry University to support their unique trading floor facility for students. CapitalCMS enables the students to significantly expand their knowledge base and capabilities through event-driven, integrated simulations," says Bryant Nielson, Managing Director of CapitalWave.

In addition to the range of simulations already available from CapitalWave at the London Campus, the company is working closely with Coventry University to develop further simulations that tie in with specific curriculum of Coventry's graduate programmes.

CapitalCMS is the first integrated capital market simulator to be made available in seven languages. The company has announced three additional training platforms to be released this year.
