Welcome to ACEFINMOD.com
Welcome to ACEFINMOD. This web site, started in 2009, is dedicated to show-case the research carried out since about 2002 by a team of researchers and scientists associated with the Centre for Computational Finance and Economic Agents. The work reported here reflects a complex adaptive systems perspective and the methodology of Agent-based Computational Economics to build large scale data base driven financial and economic models for purposes of market and policy design. Much of the work was pioneered while Sheri Markose was Founder Director of CCFEA, while on going work represents collaborations on projects funded by grants or those done as PhD research under Sheri's supervision.
This project builds a multi-sector agent based simulator of the US financial system which is driven by the FDIC data set. The model is first built sector by sector starting with the CDS market.
Financial network analysis and systemic risk from contagion are the key objectives of this project.

Next Generation Electronic Trading Simulators for London SETS (NGETS)
In this project, the London SETS electronic order book market is fully rebuilt and is the basis of a simulator to design and build algo strategies in real time. Detailed analysis of the structure and statistical properties of the orderbook are possible.

Sovereign Risk Contagion
In this project, the BIS bilateral data on immediate obligations between countries relative to their assets is visualized in a financial network. We proceed to analyse the financial contagion affecting the PIIGS (Portugal, Italy, Ireland, Greece, Spain) & UK.
CLIMACE, Green Transport and Smart Infra-structure
CLIMACE investigates a multi-agent model for digitally mapping the transition in economies
from high to low carbon.
covers research in this field
The 2014 conference is co-hosted with the Economic and Social Research Council and organised by Sheri Markose from theDepartment of Economics. It will critically examine established thinking and bring together a range of new perspectives on identifying future directions for macroeconomics and policy.
Developments from at least three new branches of economics, agent-based computational, complexity and behavioural economics, arising from highly interdisciplinary studies of computational and digital technologies, complexity sciences and neuro-physiology of the brain, will be addressed.
