Princeton University and First Republic Bank have kicked off a new partnership.

On June 6-10, 31 FRB executives came to Princeton's campus for the inaugural workshop of the Princeton-First Republic Bank Research & Lifelong Learning Initiative. The event was the first of three to be held at Princeton, supported by a grant that also funds research projects, postdocs and graduate students. The partnership is spearheaded by professors Ronnie Sircar, Sanjeev Kulkarni and Mete Soner in the Department of Operations Research and Financial Engineering (ORFE.) The first workshop included lectures and tutorials on probabilistic thinking, cryptocurrencies, digital money and decision-making.
