2023 Consortium on Asset Management 

Monday, 13th March 2023
Cambridge, England

Supported by Cambridge Judge Business School's Centre for Endowment Asset Management (CEAM) and FMA, the Consortium is designed for European finance faculty who are currently working on research in asset management and related topics. Priority will be given to researchers who have received their doctorates within the last five years.

The consortium will be focused, with 5-6 high-quality papers, discussants, and a limited number of other researchers. Distinguished members of the finance profession, and practitioners, will provide feedback to presenters and discuss issues in asset management as well as aspects of academic publishing and career development.

The theme for this year’s workshop will be Asset Management. We particularly encourage papers within this theme that focus on: investing over the long-term; index investing; responsible investing; fund governance; factor investing; disruptive trends/technologies and how they’re influencing investors; and machine learning applications to asset management.

The consortium will be held as an in-person event in Cambridge, England.
