This year, AAM and CAMRI are pleased to announce that CFA Institute has joined us as a partner in this Annual Prize. The 2017 Asia Asset Management – CAMRI – CFA Institute Prize in Asset Management is worth US$15,000 and will be awarded to just one winning paper. 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. In light of the 2017 Pensions and ESG Forum’s theme, we especially welcome papers on pensions & retirement finance, household & consumer finance, and ESG.
Among the members of the prize's judging panel are: Professors David Reeb, 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 31, 2017, and the winner will be notified by Friday, September 15, 2017. Papers, along with corresponding SSRN links, should be submitted via email to: email@example.com.
The 2017 AAM-CAMRI-CFA Institute Prize Award Ceremony will take place during the 2017 Pensions and ESG dinner on Wednesday, November 15, 2017 in Singapore. The author of the winning paper will also deliver a lunch presentation on their research to an audience of academics and senior practitioners at the 2017 Pensions and ESG Forum on Thursday, November 16, 2017. The winning author (or at least one author of a multi-authored submission) is expected to attend and present at these two events. 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.
