The annual AQR Insight Award, sponsored by AQR Capital Management, recognizes and rewards important, unpublished papers that provide the most significant new practical insights for institutional investors and Registered Investment Advisors. Up to three papers share a $100,000 prize. As members of a global investment-management firm that is rooted in academia but executes in the real world, we read a lot of academic finance papers. The ones that get our attention are hard-hitting, with application to the real-word challenges our investors face. The winners always deliver on three challenges: What’s groundbreaking? What’s actionable? And what holds up to rigorous review?
We are open to papers on any investment-related topic — such as asset allocation, security selection, portfolio construction or risk management — as long as they deliver clear, significant insights for asset managers.
