Besides our in-house trading activities, we are dedicated to international research activities. In the context of numerous EU-funded projects, JRC succeeded in creating a link between quantitative data and qualitative news. Such multimodal levels of information are very common in the financial sector, where numerical price movements are important, but business or political news have to be taken into account, as well.
JRC has cooperated with renowned project partners including a banking institution (Berlin, Germany), Atos (France), University of Surrey (Great Britain), Erasmus University Rotterdam (Netherlands), Finsoft (United Kingdom) and Ibermática (Spain). The findings from these projects have been used for the development of new trading systems.
Due to this scientific approach and the continuous exchange of knowledge with academic institutions JRC is always at the edge of the newest developments in financial engineering.
