What is the Wagner Award?

Download the 2013 Wagner Award Competition Rules

Launched in 2009, the NAAIM Wagner Award is designed to expand awareness of active investment management techniques and the results of active strategies through the solicitation and publication of research on active management. An award of $10,000 is presented annually for the best paper submitted to the competition.

“The 2007-2008 bear market, following on the heels of the 20002002 decline, led many investors to question the wisdom of buy-and-hold investing,” explains Jerry Wagner, a NAAIM founding member and co‐chairman of the association’s drive to generate academic research on the viability of active management. “NAAIM members have always believed active is better,” he said. “Our competition is designed to support this position through sound research and shine the spotlight on those individuals advancing this field of study.”

    Very well program! My questions is that once the session has been completed, will the paper works of participants be published or uploaded in the website?
