Capital Markets Cooperative Research Centre
The Capital Markets Cooperative Research Centre (CMCRC) provides thought leadership and break-through technology solutions for capital and health markets. We are Australia’s leading research and development organisation assuring market quality.
CMCRC examines issues in health policy, informatics, data mining and health economics. We are motivated by improving the information base to:
- enhance consumer choice
- enable active end-user participation in the health market
- improve data management.
We work with leading universities, health care providers and insurers to deliver the platform for evidence based research and operational analytics.
CMCRC's consulting arm provides leading independent expert witnesses to support legal issues and disputes in market surveillance, continuous disclosure breaches and insider trading.
CMCRC provides a world class research scholarship program for high-achieving PhD and Post-Doctoral candidates to conduct research with an industry and university partner in Health, Finance or ICT.
CMCRC examines issues in security market microstructure (design). We ascertain how changes in market design impact the fairness and efficiency of markets.
We are motivated by the mandate of the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) to “Ensure that markets are fair [and] efficient”. We work with leading universities, regulators, exchanges and market participants to evaluate the impact of market design changes.
CMCRC was the first CRC to develop its own venture fund from profits received from commercial enterprise. These funds are used to support new and existing companies to develop new and innovative technologies with a view to future self-funding.
CMCRC's central development team comprises experts in the productisation of innovative research technology-such as SMARTS, Market Quality Dashboard, HIBIS and I-Plus.
