Research Agenda

​Through its Research Agenda portal, the CMA aims to build bridges of communications with independent researchers in academic institutions and research centers to conduct sound research serving different aspects of capital markets and CMA's primary functions.

Where the CMA periodically opens the door for submission to the research agenda project for all researchers in academic institutions and research centers by publishing the research areas periodically on its website and the time frame for submission, screening and selection.

Accordingly, researchers submit their research proposals in the areas under study through the electronic form designated for that. In turn, the CMA will review all researchers' requests, selects relevant topics and provides the necessary support to researchers.


Research Areas

The Capital Market Authority periodically updates the list of research areas to reflect the topics of importance to the capital market.

Research Areas for 2022:

It's our pleasure to open doors for research proposals on the following fields:

  1. Measuring the impact of CMA's regulations on the financial markets
  2. Evaluating board members in listed companies and their statutory obligations

The CMA also receives any proposals for other relevant research topics outside the scope of the published research agenda to evaluate and review them for the next versions of the Research Agenda.
