AQR is now accepting submissions for the 2021 AQR Insight Award.
The AQR Insight Award recognizes and rewards exceptional academic working papers that offer original, intelligent approaches to practical issues in the investment world. Up to three papers share a $100,000 annual prize.
AQR will consider papers on any investment-related topic as long as they deliver clear, significant insights. Winners are chosen by the AQR Insight Award Committee, a panel of senior members of the firm, many of whom are leading academic finance experts from top universities.
The deadline for entries is November 1, 2020 and papers must not be published before that date. Finalists will be invited to present their research in May 2021, and winners will be subsequently announced in June.
Please note that the 2020 AQR Insight Award was deferred to 2021. Any papers submitted for the 2020 award will automatically be considered for the 2021 award.
The AQR Insight Award counts many esteemed academics among its recipients. More information about the award can be found here.
