An important part of our mission at MRA is to make a positive contribution to the world around us. In concert with clients, in 2015, we raised $320,000 during our Fourth Annual Charity Trading Day to support organizations whose missions have made a difference to individuals and families in the MRA community. In total, MRA is proud to have given more than $1,500,000 thus far to a series of strong causes. Below we show some of the initiatives we have contributed to.
Our business is built on the strength of our people, and at MRA, we believe that it is critical to invest in the development of new talent. With our beginnings rooted in the financial crisis, no one understands better the increasing complexities of global market risk. We have witnessed firsthand how the financial industry is changing, and have tailored our recruiting and training approach to appropriately account for and respond to those changes.
Mentorship and Training Program: We believe that the principles of finance are teachable. Through close mentoring and training sessions, we work with our new members to connect the dots between theory and practice, creating a more productive and successful learning environment for everyone on our team. We invite you to read an op-ed written by Dean Curnutt our CEO, to learn more about how the changes in the financial industry's approach to training have influenced our own teaching strategy at MRA: Unhedged Commentary: Why Training the Sell Side is So Important.
