2022 Consortium on Asset Management and Fintech

4 March 2022
Clayton Hotel, Cardiff Lane | Dublin, ROI

Sponsored by the Bank of Ireland, and 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 and Fintech. We particularly encourage papers within this theme that focus on: digital asset pricing, smart contracts, machine learning, robo-advising, digital platforms, textual analysis, blockchain, and cryptocurrency.


The final program will be available after the review of papers is completed.
