Category:Behavioral and social facets of systemic risk[edit]

was Category:Systemic Risk - Behavioral & Social Facets

  • I'm the original author of two category pages
    • Category:Systemic risk This has a related article page Systemic risk that I did not author but could use updating. There may also be key Wikipedia pages that could be tagged with this category. Help from ASIA would be really nice!!!
    • Category:Behavioral and social facets of systemic risk I did not write an article page on this but would participate in a group to write one. See the talk page for more. This is bleeding edge research - 10 toes over the front of the surfboard type stuff. However its very real and have found at least one initial survey article (top quality in a heavily refereed journal) so its undeniably legitimate. Would love help here!!!

Project merger[edit]

I have become aware, as a member, that this project is becoming increasingly more inactive. I recently revived the WikiProject Investment and it has been growing.

So I would like to propose a merger of these two projects.It would benefit the general coverage of finance and investment on Wikipeda ´, as both of these topics have much in common.

Please let me know of what your opinion on this is.

Thanks! WikiEditCrunch (talk) 10:24, 27 August 2017 (UTC)

I don't really see the need, as finance and investment are and can be separate. But I won't oppose if others favor. Figureofnine (talkcontribs) 12:01, 27 August 2017 (UTC)
@Figureofnine: The two topics have a lot in common.Merging the project can definietly make "attracting" new members easier as more interests and a larger scope are/is represented.Currently the projects are neglected from a lack of active members and as one combined project it could have a bigger opportunity in becoming successful in improving Wikipedia.
Cheers. WikiEditCrunch (talk) 15:16, 27 August 2017 (UTC)
I guess it's harmless enough. Inactive projects usually just stay inactive. This one is not totally dead. Figureofnine (talkcontribs) 15:22, 27 August 2017 (UTC)
@Figureofnine: The project is heading towards becoming inactive for sure.Id say this could be a great solution. Cheers. WikiEditCrunch (talk) 15:33, 27 August 2017 (UTC)
Go for it. By the way you don't have to ping me with each response. I've this page watchlisted. Figureofnine (talkcontribs) 16:55, 27 August 2017 (UTC)
I support a merger. Investments is arguably a subset of Finance anyway, and in any case, there is clearly substantial overlap in subject matter. We also have a limited number of interested editors, and editors on the two projects also tend to overlap. John M Baker (talk) 15:10, 28 August 2017 (UTC)
I am not sure how many users are needed to comment or approve this so to speak, but I guess it is reasonable to wait until more members of the Finance Project give their input.If this doesnt happen then can we just merge the projects? Cheers! WikiEditCrunch (talk) 19:07, 28 August 2017 (UTC)
This is enough support if opposition does not emerge, but I would give it three or four more days to make sure that everyone has a chance to comment. If opposition emerges, you might want to give it the full 30 days, see WP:Merge. John M Baker (talk) 16:08, 29 August 2017 (UTC)
Good idea. Cheers! WikiEditCrunch (talk) 16:40, 29 August 2017 (UTC)
Since no one has opposed this merger since more than 4 days Ill start to merge the two projects.
Just one more matter I would like to get an opinion on:Rename the Project (WikiProject Finance & Investment for example) or make a task force?
Cheers! WikiEditCrunch (talk) 17:36, 8 September 2017 (UTC)
That name makes sense. I see no harm with a merger. I've been watchlisting this page for seven years and I can't recall the last time anything of interest surfaced. Merger seems to be a good remedy for the blahs. Figureofnine (talkcontribs) 16:21, 17 September 2017 (UTC)
As the merger is pretty much finished, I would like to propose a name change for the project to WikiProject Finance & Investment.
I suppose Figureofnine somewhat agrees but getting some more opinions would probably be right.
Cheers! WikiEditCrunch (talk) 17:08, 23 October 2017 (UTC)
I support the name change. While it is not, strictly speaking, necessary, it is desirable for clarity. John M Baker (talk) 19:07, 23 October 2017 (UTC)
Alright then. WikiEditCrunch (talk) 10:06, 3 November 2017 (UTC)

Edit request: BNY Mellon[edit]

Hello, I've been working with BNY Mellon to suggest improvements to the article about the company. I posted this edit request asking for routine updates to the article, including fresh figures and the most up-to-date information on company executives and board members. Regarding company executives and board members, the article is inaccurate in its current form: Karen Peetz is not president, Gerald Hassell is not CEO, and the makeup of the board of directors is not the same as it was in February 2015. Also, at present the article contradicts itself: The infobox correctly says Charles Scharf is CEO, whereas the body of the article does not. I posted the edit request a few weeks back and have yet to hear from editors. Perhaps editors at WikiProject Finance are interested in reviewing the proposed updates? Thanks in advance, Danilo Two (talk) 19:40, 8 September 2017 (UTC)

Ill take a look. Cheers! WikiEditCrunch (talk) 14:16, 9 September 2017 (UTC)

British pounds to Congolese francs[edit]

Hello, WikiProject Finance. I'm drafting an article on the Democratic Republic of the Congo's first government, User:Indy beetle/Lumumba Government. At one point I discuss the debt this country had to handle. The numbers given by the source are in British pounds (circa 1960 valuation), but I would like to render these in Congolese francs (which at the time were given the same value as Belgian francs, 1960). Could anyone help me with the conversion? -Indy beetle (talk) 21:07, 1 October 2017 (UTC)

Edit request: add a financial data vendor in the list[edit]

Hello, I suggest adding Devexperts to the List of notable financial data vendors in Financial data vendor. I've also posted a request to create the company's page, providing the relevant links, as in the List section there is a demand to have a company's wikipedia article which should be linked.

Help with Sageworks (financial tech company)[edit]

Hi! I'm wondering if WikiProject Finance editors might be interested in some proposed updates for the article on Sageworks, which makes financial data and analysis software, and collects financial data on the private sector. In full disclosure, I'm here on behalf of Sageworks as part of my work with Beutler Ink. To start with, I've suggested a proposal for the History section, to provide some background on how the firm got started and a few major milestones. I'm keen to get input from editors from this WikiProject since you may have some familiarity with this type of company and their offerings. At Talk:Sageworks I've provided some background on the history of the page and why I'm offering new drafts. Let me know if you have any feedback or questions. Thanks in advance! 16912 Rhiannon (Talk · COI) 19:57, 11 October 2017 (UTC)

Nomination of Worthington National Bank for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Worthington National Bank is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Worthington National Bank until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. Theprussian (talk) 16:53, 16 October 2017 (UTC)

Help with updates to New York Life[edit]

Hi, as well as my request for Sageworks (above), I'm working on proposing some article updates to New York Life Insurance Company. I'm wondering if editors from this WikiProject might be interested in giving this a review. To start, I've suggested a proposal to update the infobox. You'll see on the Talk page that I'm looking to correct the Net income to Operating income, add Products, Assets under management, and update the Number of employees. In full disclosure, I'm here on behalf of New York Life Insurance Company as part of my work with Beutler Ink. Thanks in advance! 16912 Rhiannon (Talk · COI) 21:04, 2 November 2017 (UTC)

Disambiguation links on pages tagged by this wikiproject[edit]

Wikipedia has many thousands of wikilinks which point to disambiguation pages. It would be useful to readers if these links directed them to the specific pages of interest, rather than making them search through a list. Members of WikiProject Disambiguation have been working on this and the total number is now below 20,000 for the first time. Some of these links require specialist knowledge of the topics concerned and therefore it would be great if you could help in your area of expertise.

A list of the relevant links on pages which fall within the remit of this wikiproject can be found at

A proposal to review crypto-currency articles in a more organized way[edit]

It has been my impression that WikiProject_Medicine is fully aware of the potential harm that could occur if there were errors in the articles within their remit— potentially far more serious than if say some random biography contained an error. While economic and investment articles are not the same league as the literally life-and-death issues in medical articles, the potential harm in mistaken articles is considerable. We know that there are many editors, often SPA's, more interested in making sure that an article about some crypto currency reads favorably, than making sure it is a neutral unbiased encyclopedia article. A recent post on Jimbo's talk page User_talk:Jimbo_Wales#Bitcoin,_Tulips,_Facebook,_ICOs,_binary_options,_and_Slash_Gear identified the problem. While I'm not fully on board with the implicit solutions, I do agree with Jimbo's observation that perhaps a wiki project should take on the task of more formally reviewing the relevant articles and ensuring that they meet our standards.

While I haven't been active in this wiki project. I do have decades of experience in finance and have frankly not worked on finance articles mean because it seemed more like work than fun, but the sounds like something that deserves more attention. What do others think?--S Philbrick(Talk) 19:44, 14 February 2018 (UTC)

While this sounds like an excellent idea, you should be aware that this is an only modestly active project, so this may not be the best place to launch such a review. John M Baker (talk) 19:59, 14 February 2018 (UTC)
That is my fear. Editors with economics and finance knowledge seem to be sadly rare.--S Philbrick(Talk) 22:39, 14 February 2018 (UTC)

Help with problematic Magnetar Capital article[edit]

Hi there! Reaching out to members of this WikiProject to see if someone with an interest in investment firms would be able to review an edit request at Magnetar Capital to clean up the infobox and add some clarification to the introduction. As disclosure, I do have a financial conflict of interest, as I am here on behalf of Magnetar Capital as part of my work at Beutler Ink. I'm looking for input from uninvolved editors and assistance making edits if they're appropriate. Thanks in advance, 16912 Rhiannon (Talk · COI) 22:03, 8 May 2018 (UTC)

Hello again! Letting members of this WikiProject know that I've left a message at Talk:Magnetar Capital flagging major issues that need to be addressed on this problematic article, and I'm hoping editors experienced in writing about finance and investment can take a look. I've outlined many of the issues I see with the article and (as mentioned above) have also separately posted a first edit request to work towards resolving them, but would love to get editors' feedback on how best to work through some of the more thorny aspects in a way that best meets Wikipedia's standards. Disclosing again, I do have a financial conflict of interest, as I am here on behalf of Magnetar Capital as part of my work at Beutler Ink.

Haircut in finance[edit]

Greetings. There is an ongoing discussion in the Talk page of the article "Haircut (finance)." It concerns the alternative meaning the term has taken, specifically in the context of sovereign-debt write downs during and after the global financial crisis, i.e. the reduction in the face value of the troubled borrower's debts. I invite everyone to participate in it since the issue is rather important for the subject. Take care. -The Gnome (talk) 11:26, 3 July 2018 (UTC)

Help with replacing defective article?[edit]

Hello, anyone watching this page: I'm writing to seek help updating the article for Broadridge Financial Solutions. It has been very bad for a long time, and more recently has been snipped back (not unfairly) to a mere stub where the extensive warning tag is almost longer than the article itself. I have a financial COI here, as I've been retained by the company to try to improve the situation. I've elected to write a new draft, and am looking for an unconnected volunteer to review it and, ideally, move it into the mainspace. If you're willing to give it a look, please check out the proposed replacement draft, as well as my talk page explanation. Any comment or assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Seeking Editor Assistance for Consumer Bankers Association article[edit]

Hello, Wikipedia! I work for Consumer Bankers Association (CBA), and I'd like to suggest some improvements for the CBA article. I've made a post on the article's talk page, but there hasn't been any movement on the article yet.

The current article is very short and has not been updated since 2008. I've proposed a draft to add more content to the existing sections and build off of those as sourcing allows. Feel free to take a look at my proposed draft here - User:CBA NS/Consumer Bankers Association. I know about conflict of interest rules, and have done my best to follow the suggested procedures.

Are there any editors on Wikiproject Finance & Investment who can take a look at the draft and copy over content or provide any feedback? Thanks! CBA NS (talk) 19:11, 4 December 2018 (UTC)

List of banks (alphabetically)[edit]

Up until early January 2019 the article List of banks (alphabetically) was described as List of all banks, but then many banks starting with V were deleted and a few days later the article's description was changed by the same editor to List of notable banks. As this article has been of Top-Importance for our project, I was wondering whether this change was ok and which criteria for notability might be valid for banks.--Bob Smit (talk) 11:07, 23 January 2019 (UTC)

Hello @Bob Smit:, thanks for the question, and sorry I had not yet replied to you on my talk page. Because Wikipedia is not an indiscriminate collection of information, list articles such as these are limited to notable entries only. The relevant guideline is at WP:CSC: "Every entry meets the notability criteria for its own non-redirect article in the English Wikipedia. Red-linked entries are acceptable if the entry is verifiably a member of the listed group, and it is reasonable to expect an article could be forthcoming in the future. This standard prevents Wikipedia from becoming an indiscriminate list, and prevents individual lists from being too large to be useful to readers." Banks fall under the notability standard for companies. Any other questions, let us know. UnitedStatesian (talk) 19:52, 23 January 2019 (UTC)
Hello @UnitedStatesian: thank you for explaining.--Bob Smit (talk) 12:50, 24 January 2019 (UTC)

Help with Advisor Group Page[edit]

Seeking help clarifying and correcting the Advisor Group page. Currently, it contains typos, a single (misnamed) link, outdated information and factual errors. Moreover, most of the article is compressed into a single paragraph, making it difficult to digest the information it contains. I've added corrections and suggestions to the article's Talk page. Hoping someone can take a look. As a self-employed copywriter who does occasional work for Advisor Group, I'm a COI contributor, so can't make the changes myself. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks. --Richardmlange (talk) 21:16, 5 April 2019 (UTC)

Could some helpful person explain the difference between Category:Investment companies and Category:Investment management companies? I am a humble categoriser and I presumed that one would be a subcategory of the other. There is an article about Investment company, though it seems to be entirely about the USA and isnt very illuminating, and one about Investment management, but it doesnt really help me. Rathfelder (talk) 21:15, 14 July 2019 (UTC)

  • Rathfelder I think that those are different types of companies, although one company could fulfill both roles. I suggest the following references, which I have not completely reviewed but at first glance look reasonable to me.

--Pine (✉) 01:40, 15 July 2019 (UTC)

  • Thank you. I'm afraid the more I read the more confused I get. Especially as I find more associated categories, like Category:Asset management. The general rule is that a category should have an article to anchor it, which explains the definition, among other things. We dont really seem to have that here, and I'm not very sure it would help, as it appears that the terms used are pretty flexible, and indeed that the organisations change over time and space. I'd like advice about whether the distinction between Category:Investment companies and Category:Investment management companies is helpful. My inclination is to combine them into one category, because, apart from any other consideration, apart from the UK and the USA, there are not sufficient articles to justify more than one category in a country. Quite a few articles appear in both categories. Rathfelder (talk) 10:52, 15 July 2019 (UTC)

I'm told an Investment Management Company would manage my money. An Investment Company would manage its own money - but I might be able to buy shares in it. Is that a reasonable summary. Rathfelder (talk) 11:58, 15 July 2019 (UTC)

Yes, that should be the answer. But in practice, the use of these categories seems to be hopelessly confused. It doesn't help that the anchor articles don't make sense. It also doesn't help that "investment company" is itself a vague term. It can mean either a company for the purpose of investment, without further specificity, or a company that is subject to regulation in the United States under the Investment Company Act of 1940, which seems overspecific. The latter clearly doesn't work, because the category includes non-U.S. funds and because U.S. investment companies (in the 1940 Act sense) tend to be in other categories, such as Category:Mutual funds of the United States. Investment fund might be a better anchor article. But then you get to the consideration that, in actuality, there are very few investment companies/investment funds that are notable enough to have a Wikipedia article. It looks like most of the companies in either category are actually investment managers. I don't think we even have an article for investment management firms, although we do have an article on investment management. John M Baker (talk) 22:08, 15 July 2019 (UTC)

Neutrality and original research issues in articles related to Medicaid estate recovery[edit]

Recently, I noted that some of the content about Medicaid estate recovery that was added to the following articles introduced neutrality and original research issues into these articles:

I brought this to the neutral point of view noticeboard at WP:NPOVN § Medicaid estate recovery and User:NormSpier, and the editor who added the content (NormSpier) agreed to have it examined for policy compliance.

Apparently OANDA was AFD'd almost three years ago. They are widely used in cites and as a data source on enwiki (and likely other wikis) and their analysts are quoted virtually daily by top-tier news sources, including CNBC, Reuters, Bloomberg, and the BBC. I'm sure anyone with financial markets experience would find them "notable". Don't get me wrong – I'm definitely familiar with notability policy and constantly defend the wiki against commercial promotion. If someone keen on article creation is interested in finding the appropriate sources, I would think they have to be out there (sorry it's not my thing, and I do hate to ask others).

Request for information on WP1.0 web tool[edit]

Hello and greetings from the maintainers of the WP 1.0 Bot! As you may or may not know, we are currently involved in an overhaul of the bot, in order to make it more modern and maintainable. As part of this process, we will be rewriting the web tool that is part of the project. You might have noticed this tool if you click through the links on the project assessment summary tables.

Dispute at Negative number[edit]

This article includes a list of examples that I'm not too keen on generally, but one uncited example under the heading "Finance" said that credit and debit card statements show refunds as "negative debits." I removed this because "negative debits" are nonexistent in accounting, and as far as I know finance more generally. Debits are reversed by credits and nothing else. A debit of 10 is not reversed by a debit of -10 or a credit of -10, but by a credit of 10 (though a credit can have a minus sign before or after the number to show that it is a credit). I provided a source (a textbook) that says this very specifically. The removal was disputed on the talk page by editors who say that it was accurate as written and references to accounting are irrelevant. After back-and-forth, I tried rewriting the example and neighboring examples with more precise language instead of removing them. This was also reverted and I was told that I can't change it at all without consensus, but I don't see much chance of that if there isn't even agreement about what the subject is.

I would appreciate opinions on the talk page as to how these examples might be improved, and what kind of sources should or should not be used. (talk) 03:29, 20 November 2019 (UTC)

Lee Fixel[edit]


Hello! I've submitted a request to update the Early life and education section of the Lee Fixel article as part of my work with Beutler Ink. Lee Fixel is an American venture capitalist and investor and I'm hoping to update some straightforward biographical information. You can view my full request here, which seeks to improve flow and fix a few inaccurate details. Will someone please review this request? Given my COI, I'm asking independent editors to confirm accuracy, neutrality, and verifiability. I'll happily address any questions or concerns that may arise. Thanks in advance!

Rule of 78s[edit]

Can someone with knowledge check out this IP editor edit to Rule of 78s? I don't have the background to assess it, but I'm always leery of unexplained changes and additions to mathematical formulae; nor do I want to blindly revert it. TJRC (talk) 22:13, 21 February 2020 (UTC)

New York Life Insurance Company request[edit]

On behalf of New York Life Insurance Company, I have a (hopefully) quick and simple request for some edits to update infobox figures and a couple of pieces of dated information at the New York Life Insurance Company Talk page. Would any editors here might be able to help? Although the requested updates are straightforward, I'm looking for uninvolved editors to review and make the changes since I have a conflict of interest. (I've added the request edit template, but not received any reply.) Thank you in advance, 16912 Rhiannon (Talk · COI) 01:58, 1 April 2020 (UTC)

2020 oil war[edit]

The 2020 Russia–Saudi Arabia oil price war is currently rated low-importance, but with oil prices falling below zero (producers paying people to take their oil), this seems to be of more import? Especially since it is an oil industry crash for regions with hard access oil (oil shale, oil sand, etc). And regional economic crashes for producers of higher priced production oil. Also, oil stocks being in freefall. -- (talk) 08:06, 21 April 2020 (UTC)

Need some expert editing about Carmen Busquets[edit]

A long time ago an acknowledged paid editor asked me to add some things to this article and ever since I've had it on my watchlist. One of the things that people keep adding to the article is the idea that Busquets is a "co-founder" of Net-a-Porter, but there's a lot more material that's been added. I know nothing about fashion or finance, so I'd appreciate some new eyes. There's some relevant conversation on the talk page. Thanks, SchreiberBike | ⌨  03:24, 4 July 2020 (UTC)

Help correcting mistakes about world's largest digital currency asset manager[edit]

Hi. There are various mistakes and omissions in the article about Digital Currency Group, specifically for Grayscale Investments, the largest digital currency asset manager in the world. I have endeavored to write with a NPOV and only include educational content. Since anything regarding digital currency is somewhat controversial and complicated and requires careful independent consideration, I hope that someone from this project might do a review.

Warburg Pincus[edit]

I have proposed some important corrections to the history of the historically pivotal private equity firm Warburg Pincus The proposal can be found here: Talk:Warburg Pincus#Request Edit August 2020 I hoped someone in this group might be interested in reviewing the proposals -- as I have a conflict as someone with a personal relationship to a company co-founder. (But I am unpaid and have no professional relationship to the subject.) Thank you! Fvogelstein (talk) 19:59, 10 August 2020 (UTC)
