Academic Research (MI3)

Integral to Plato Partnership’s vision is academic research – the Market Innovator (MI3). This will produce independent research and analytics, open to peer review, and aimed at seeking out ways in which the Plato community can collaborate to build a better financial ecosystem.

Plato Partnership’s members believe that there has long been a desire to have a mechanism whereby all market participants can collectively address regulatory imperatives, communication flows, or other universal processes that are not competitive differentiators. The economics of tackling those individual issues through a preformed collective will enable Plato Partnership to take serious costs out of the system and earn trust. The members believe that Plato Partnership holds a unique position and through its Market Innovator (MI3), will be able to create a flow of truly compelling proposals.

          Testimonials for MI3 research:

          “With support from the Plato Partnership last year, we have undertaken a comprehensive study on how machine learning techniques are being used to enhance and create new information processing flows in electronic trading. By providing access to its wide network of industry practitioners, the Plato Partnership’s involvement was crucial in getting useful insights about the gaps between theory and practice in this area and identifying important future trends. This study will enable new types of academic-industry partnerships leading to more innovation in this area.” University Professors Fethi Rabhi and Nikolay Mehandjiev.
