MFRL works together with Wageningen University & Research (WUR), European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) and Commodity Risk Management Expertise Center (CORMEC) consortium to protect commodity and financial markets
WUR, CERN and CORMEC signed an agreement to collaborate on research that aims to create new methods to protect commodity and financial markets from malpractices (fraud), to identify anomalies that can harm the integrity of these markets and, subsequently, to improve the design and regulation of markets.
The collaboration attempts to identify and predict market manipulation. This should enable regulators to create safer and more stable market environments, by keeping pace with the rapidly changing trading environment, leading to improved regulation and development of market structures (design) that enhance the integrity of markets. The research may lead to diagnostic tools to predict financial instability. In addition, this research will indirectly help market participants (hedgers) to better manage their risk, thereby lowering capital costs – a necessary condition for innovation.
