A team from the Centre for Risk Research (CRR) has received funding from the Shenzhen government in China and Audaque Ltd, one of the world’s most innovative data management companies, for a project to build a big data-supported financial services platform.


The research team comprises Professor Johnnie Johnson, Professor Vanessa Sung and Dr Tiejun Ma. They are layering academic, technical and industrial expertise to develop a sophisticated system that can process massive quantities of financial data from banks, securities institutions, small-loan companies, peer-to-peer (P2P) and people-to-business (P2B) internet finance companies to support decisions made by financial institutions.

The team will build a sophisticated data platform that will bring together data management and financial assessment of individuals’ risk in real time. The team are confident that the CRR's longstanding partnership with top financial firms in London will help ensure its functionality.

The ambitious nature of the project was described by Dr Tiejun Ma: "This is a truly international, collaborative project which brings significant opportunities for the CRR. We are uniquely placed to tackle the current problems with big data analysis – misinterpretation, modelling and speed – and to build a platform that enables the accurate financial assessment of individual behaviours in real time.”
