The Investor Responsibility Research Center Institute (IRRCi) has opened its sixth annual competition for research that examines the interaction between the real economy and investment theory. Practitioners and academics are invited to submit research papers by October 6, 2017, for consideration by a blue-ribbon panel of judges with deep finance and investment experience.
Two research papers – one academic and one practitioner – each will receive the 2017 IRRCi Research Award along with a $10,000 award. The winning papers will also be presented at the Millstein Center for Global Markets and Corporate Ownership at Columbia University in December 2017 in New York City.
The panel of respected judges includes:
Robert Dannhauser, Head of Capital Markets Policy, CFA Institute
James Hawley, Professor and Director of the Elfenworks Center for Fiduciary Capitalism at St. Mary’s College
Erika Karp, Founder, CEO and Chair of the Board of Cornerstone Capital
