Competitive Markets Advisory Council (CMAC)

The CME Group Competitive Markets Advisory Council (CMAC) was originally organized by Nobel Laureates Myron Scholes and Gary Becker in partnership with Leo Melamed in March 2004. CMAC consists of financial experts, including Nobel Prize winners, who serve as a “think tank” to develop and provide advice to the Board in the form of policy, analyses, position papers and other strategic recommendations on significant market issues. Notably, CMAC plays an integral leadership role within the CME Group Center for Innovation by selecting the annual recipients of the CME Group Melamed-Arditti Innovation Award and the CME Group-MSRI Prize in Innovative Quantitative Applications.
