The Derivatives Technology Foundation is a non-profit organisation supported by True Partner Capital. Our aim is to encourage innovation in the use of financial derivatives by fostering cooperation between industry and science. The Foundation works to build bridges between the academic and business communities; to facilitate the sharing of insight and knowledge. We organise events, sponsor research and provide opportunities for graduate students to conduct research on real-life financial projects.
