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. In its second year as an Annual Prize partner, the CFA Institute continues to join us in this year’s Prize as well.

We are pleased to announce that the Winning Paper of the 2018 AAM-CAMRI-CFA Institute Prize in Asset Management (from more than 80 excellent applications from around the world) is entitled: Tokenomics: Dynamic Adoption and Valuation. The paper is co-authored by Lin William Cong (University of Chicago Booth School of Business), Ye Li (Ohio State University), and Neng Wang (Columbia Business School).

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 2018 Prize will be awarded to the winner in Hong Kong on Wednesday, November 28, 2018 and paper presentation will take place on Thursday November 29, 2018.

The Prize’s judging panel comprised of academics from Asia, and was chaired by Associate Professor Johan Sulaeman, Research Director at CAMRI, 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 David Reeb, Past Research Director at CAMRI and the Mr. and Mrs. Lin Jo Yan Professor of Banking and Finance at NUS Business School, for helping the Prize’s judging panel out.

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.
