UQAM creates financial research centre

January 12, 2021
The Université du Québec à Montréal has created a new research centre called the Centre d’intelligence en surveillance des marchés financiers. The unit has three objectives: to ensure the financial ecosystem’s integrity against manipulation through promoting best practices, to identify approaches that will optimize detection of manipulation and deceptive trading practices, and to position Montreal as a global centre in financial market supervision. The centre will provide a space to do scientific research, to train professionals, and to bring together experts from all related disciplines for collaboration. UQAM (QC)
