A word from AQR’s founders

By assembling scholars and industry-leading practitioners, the AQR Asset Management Institute is an incubator for research and best practices and a centre for investor education — objectives that AQR has long considered part of our mission.

As well as supporting research, the Institute recognises exemplary scholars in the field with annual grants and awards, and sponsors events to bring together academics, policy makers and practitioners.

The partnership between our firm and London Business School — an institution renowned for its academic rigor and top faculty — is a powerful one. Together, we aim to strengthen ties within the global investment community and gain a better understanding of the role asset management plays in preserving and generating long-term wealth.
