Call for Projects


Call for projects

The Geneva Institute for Wealth Management is a non–profit foundation created in 2016 by the University of Geneva and Geneva Financial Center to promote international partnerships in post-graduate education, executive education, research and knowledge transfer in wealth management.


Research program

The GIWM provides financial support for academic research projects with expected impact in the field of wealth management. Up to four grants of CHF 15’000 will be awarded for the academic year 2020-2021.

Payments will be made directly to the researchers. Completed research projects are expected to be presented at the yearly GIWM research workshop. "Recent Trends in Wealth Management", the first GIWM research workshop, was held in January 2020.

Support of a research project by GIWM does not in any way preclude subsequent publication of the paper in a journal of the researcher's choice, provided adequate acknowledgement for the financial support by GIWM is included.

Thank you for your application. The deadline for the academic year 2020-2021 is now over.  The projects are currently under review by the Scientific Committee. Selection will be announced shortly.

The project selection is under the supervision of the head of research at GIWM, Prof. Tony Berrada (University of Geneva) and of the scientific council of the GIWM composed of

  • Professor Bruno Biais - Toulouse School of Economics
  • Professor Peter Bossaerts - University of Melbourne
  • Professor Jerome Detemple - Boston University
  • Professor Andrew Lo - MIT
