Brief Description: The Reliant Energy Trading Center was established in 2000 thanks to the generous support of Reliant Energy. As part of the Department of Finance, the center gives Mays business students access to analytical tools and volumes of real-time and historical financial data. Students also make use of the Reliant Energy Trading Center to manage the Tanner Fund, a student-run portfolio established by Jamey S. and Richard C. Tanner ’53. Other business classes make use of the center, including a senior-level energy trading class, a course in energy risk management, and a sophomore-level course that exposes students to trading in securities and commodities markets.
