Provost Tan Eng Chye and CAMRI hosted a breakfast, conversation, and talk on Thursday, 10 December 2009 from 8.00am – 9.30am at Shangri-La Hotel.
Professor Zvi Bodie, whom Time magazine recently spotlighted as one of the world’s top 3 thinkers on retirement investing and the stock market, will be the breakfast speaker that morning. He will speak on a variety of current topics that draw on his primary areas of financial research, which include Life Cycle Finance and the Design of Pension Plans and The Integration of Asset Management, Financial Planning, and Risk Management. Professor Bodie’s thought-provoking 1995 article, On the Risk of Stocks in the Long Run, is one of the most cited and debated publications in U.S. financial history. His textbook, Investments, co-authored with Professors Alex Kane and Alan Marcus is the market leader in graduate and undergraduate programs at business schools globally, as well as used in the certification programs of the CFA Institute and the Society of Actuaries. He also has a textbook, Financial Economics, and a host of published articles, co-authored with Nobel Prize winning economist, Professor Robert C. Merton of Harvard University. Professor Bodie, the Norman and Adele Barron Professor of Management at Boston University and Visiting Professor of Finance at MIT Sloan School during the last academic year, is the CAMRI Visiting Professor at NUS Business School in December 2009.
