Call for research support

The Investment Committee is looking to support and develop research in the broader investments practice area and will play a role in connecting market practitioners and students.  Please contact the Committee if you are prepared to support a Masters or Honours student in a topic of practical relevance to your firm.  The supporting role is not that of a formal research supervisor but includes the identification and refinement of a relevant topic, industry and practitioner perspective, and potentially assistance with data or other practical challenges.  Similarly, any student members, learners, or other potential students, are encouraged to contact the Committee should they wish to connect with a market practitioner to support their research efforts.  We are therefore proposing an invitation to all members to get involved in a supporting role.  Please email ASSAinvestmentresearch@gmail.com
