The Financial Mathematics Computation Cluster (FMC2) is a collaboration between Industry, University College Dublin, Dublin City University and NUI Maynooth.

FMC2 brings together complementary expertise in financial mathematics, financial economics and computer science to create a multi-disciplinary research programme in asset and risk management, areas of critical importance to the future development of the international financial services sector in Ireland. 

The academic principal investigators involved in FMC2 are Professor Anthony Brabazon, Professor Gregory Connor, Professor John Cotter, Dr. David Edelman, Prof. Paolo Guasoni and Dr. Michael O'Neill.

FMC2 is supported by multiple external partners, including Pioneer Investments, Ryan Capital and the Institute of Bankers in Ireland.

We are pleased with the opportunity to be able to provide our international industry expertise to this strategic collaboration. We are very optimistic that through this project we can further enhance our in-house quantitative research capabilities and contribute to the development of the quantitative research discipline in Ireland."
