CMF announces results of its 2022 call for research projects

June 15, 2022 - The Financial Market Commission (CMF) reports on the results of its 2022 call for research projects, which was open between March 25 and April 25 as the Commission requested the academic community to submit joint study interest projects on issues of interest to the CMF.

Eight project proposals were received in that span and later reviewed by the CMF's Editorial Committee, which selected three of them. The Committee considered the relevance of the topic for the Commission, institutional priorities, and available resources. The accepted projects are:

  • Impact of Customized Price Comparison Tools in the Consumer Credit and Mortgage Market, by Sean Higgins (Northwestern University), Sheisha Kulkarni (University of Virginia) and Santiago Truffa (Universidad de los Andes).
  • Do Chilean Banks Compete Locally? Implications for Access to Credit, by Santiago Truffa (Universidad de los Andes) and Gonzalo Iberti (PhD student at Universidad Adolfo Ibáñez).
  • Green Energy and Business in Chile, by Mark Garmaise (UCLA) and Gabriel Natividad (Universidad de Piura, Peru).

Internal researchers who will participate in these projects are:

  • First Project: Erik Berwart, from the Directorate General of Market Conduct Supervision.
  • Second Project: Héctor Jerez, from the Directorate General of Studies, Statistics & Data.
  • Third Project: Mauricio Larraín, Deputy Chairman of the Commission, and Cristian Rojas, from the Directorate General of Prudential Regulation.

An agreement with external researchers must be signed to carry out these projects. It establishes several conditions which are detailed in Annex 1 of the "CMF Publication Policy for Non-Regular Documents and Institutional Reports". Some of them include mandatory participation of at least one internal researcher, and study agreements with external researchers do not commit payments to them nor are there any associated costs.

Generally, the Commission's Editorial Committee does not accept projects that can be developed with information in the public domain. There is also a limit of two simultaneous projects per researcher.

The CMF appreciates the interest shown in this call for projects and invites all interested parties to continue submitting their work in the next processes.
