2017 AAM-CAMRI-CFA Institute Prize in Asset Management Winner

In celebration of excellence in regional applied research, Asia Asset Management (AAM) aligned with NUS Business School's Centre for Asset Management Research and Investments (CAMRI) and launched the Annual AAM-CAMRI Prize in Asset Management in 2015. This year, CFA Institute joined us as a partner in this Annual Prize. 

We are pleased to announce that the Winning Paper of the 2017 AAM-CAMRI-CFA Institute Prize in Asset Management (from close to 60 excellent applications from around the world) is entitled: Global Market Inefficiencies. The paper is co-authored by Söhnke M. Bartram (Warwick University) and Mark Grinblatt (University of California, Los Angeles).

The Prize, which is worth US$15,000 and is awarded to only one paper annually, not only recognises but celebrates excellence in applied research, be it empirical or theoretical, that is original and breaks new ground in the thinking, practice, policies and issues affecting the Asian asset management industry.

The 2017 Prize was awarded to Professor Bartram at the AAM-CAMRI-CFA Institute Prize dinner on November 15, 2017 at Mandarin Orchard Singapore. He also presented his research to an audience of academics and senior practitioners during lunch at the 2nd Pensions and ESG Forum on November 16, 2017.

The Prize's judging panel comprised of academics from Asia, and was chaired by Professor David Reeb, Past Research Director at CAMRI and the Mr. and Mrs. Lin Jo Yan Professor of Banking and Finance at NUS Business School. Among the members of the judging panel were: Professors John Wei (HKUST); Takeshi Yamada (Australian National University); and Joseph Cherian (CAMRI, NUS Business School). We would also like to thank Professor Johan Sulaeman, the incoming Research Director at CAMRI, for helping the Prize’s judging panel out in a substantial way.

We thank each and every one of you who submitted a paper to this year’s AAM-CAMRI-CFA Institute Prize in Asset Management and congratulate the winning paper’s authors on their success.

CAMRI would like to thank the Asia Asset Management magazine for their generous donation towards the AAM-CAMRI-CFA Institute Prize in Asset Management, and CFA Institute for being a partner in this Annual Prize.
