The Clearing Corporation Foundation Endowed Fund

As a result of a generous $2 million gift from The Clearing Corporation Charitable Foundation, the IFM established an endowment to fund independent research that answers high-priority industry questions regarding the risks and mechanics associated with futures trading, market mechanisms, and regulation, among other topics.

The Advisory Committee determines which singular special study to underwrite, or when to jointly participate in a research program providing that the investigation and result produced meet the aforementioned quality and independence standards.
