Call for Projects

GIWM provides financial support for academic research projects with expected impact in the field of wealth management and organises public conference in Geneva..

Up to four grants of CHF 15’000 will be awarded for the academic year 2023-2024. Payments will be made directly to the researchers. Completed research projects are expected to be presented at the yearly GIWM conference to be held tentatively in the fall 2024.

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 acknowledgment for the financial support by GIWM is included.
The GIWM wishes to encourage submissions by young researchers. At least, one of the four grants will be attributed to a young scholar. This category includes current PhD students and assistant professors who have held their PhD for less than five years.
Previous awarded projects have been published in the Journal of Finance, the Review of Financial Studies, and the Journal of Financial and Quantitative Analysis. A complete list of previous awards is available here.

The application period is now closed.

We thank you for your interest in our GIWM activities. The results will be published current 2024.

  • Professor Bruno Biais - Toulouse School of Economics
