2018 AAM-CAMRI-CFA Institute Prize in Asset Management now open for submissions

Asia Asset Management (AAM), in collaboration with the Centre for Asset Management Research & Investments (CAMRI) at NUS Business School in Singapore, launched the Annual AAM-CAMRI Prize in Asset Management in 2015 to celebrate excellence in regional applied research.

In its second year as an Annual Prize partner, the CFA Institute will continue to join us in this year’s Prize as well. The 2018 AAM-CAMRI-CFA Institute Prize in Asset Management is worth US$15,000 and will be awarded to just one winning paper. For more details on the winning paper of the 2017 AAM-CAMRI-CFA Institute Prize (selected from close to 60 excellent applications from around the world), please click here.

We seek submissions on empirical or theoretical research which are judged to be original and break new ground in the thinking, practice, policies, and issues affecting the Asian asset management industry. We especially welcome papers on pensions and retirement finance, household and consumer finance, and socially responsible investing. We also welcome papers examining recent disruptions in finance (including, but not limited to, blockchains, tokens, and cryptocurrencies), and how these affect the financial industry, particularly asset management. 

Among the members of the prize's judging panel are: Professors Johan Sulaeman, Chair (CAMRI, NUS Business School); John Wei (HKUST); Takeshi Yamada (Australian National University); and Joseph Cherian (CAMRI, NUS Business School).

According to the rules of the prize, submitted papers should not have been published as of the submission closing date, and special consideration will be given to submissions that have been presented at major academic conferences or universities. Abstracts of submitted papers and the full winning paper will also be hosted on the CFA Institute’s Asia-Pacific Research Exchange website.

The closing date for submissions is Monday, July 30, 2018, and the winner will be notified by Friday, September 14, 2018. Papers, along with corresponding SSRN links, should be submitted via email to: camri@nus.edu.sg.

The winning author (or at least one author of a multi-authored submission) is expected to attend the AAM-CAMRI forum on asset management in late November 2018 to receive the prize. The author will deliver a lunch presentation on their research to an audience of academics and senior practitioners at this forum. Roundtrip airfare and two nights' lodging will be provided to the presenting author. An optional presentation tour to the Asia Pacific CFA Societies may also be arranged by the CFA Institute, with the agreement of the winner. If you have any questions on the AAM-CAMRI-CFA Institute Prize, please contact: camri@nus.edu.sg.

AAM is widely recognised as being the first trade journal in the Asia-Pacific region to cater to the needs of asset managers, pension funds and institutional investors.

CAMRI is a centre for the research, education, and practice of asset management based at the NUS Business School in Singapore.

Initiated and developed by CFA Institute, Asia-Pacific Research Exchange (ARX) strives to enhance the knowledge and understanding of investment management issues through a platform based on contributions and engagements amongst practitioners and academics.
