The AQR Asset Management Institute at London Business School was launched in January this year. The Institute funds cutting edge research and fosters high level discussion aimed at better meeting the investment challenge.
The Advisory Council will help guide and support the Institute’s development, through their knowledge and expertise of the sector and pertinent issues that affect, or may affect, the asset management industry. Members will include:
Robert Jenkins, chairman of the AQR Asset Management Institute and Adjunct Professor of Finance at London Business School, said: “The Institute will push the boundaries in asset management thought leadership. The Advisory Council will help ensure that our effort is connected firmly with the asset management world with a view to meaningful long term impact. I am honoured to Chair such an august group.”
"We are pleased that this esteemed group of industry leaders have joined the AQR Asset Management Institute's Advisory Council," said David Kabiller, Founding Principal, AQR Capital Management. "Together, the council will shape the work of the Institute, advising on and helping to open a discussion around the important issues facing investors. We look forward to their individual perspectives and insights, and thank them for their commitment to this initiative."
The Institute’s success will strengthen further London Business School’s position as the post-graduate venue of choice for asset management related research, study and recruitment.
