The Global Association of Risk Professionals
(GARP) is pleased to announce the 4th GARP Risk Management Research
Program. Projects will be selected for funding in 2013 by a
Research Committee of risk management practitioners, academicians
and researchers chaired by Professor René Stulz of The Ohio State
University. The Research Committee seeks to provide funding
projects offering unique approaches and
insights into problems of significance to risk management
projects of particular relevance to current
global financial risk management issues and needs, and
projects with significant potential for
bridging the gap between theory and practice.
The papers will appear in the SSRN Financial
Economics Network (FEN) GARP Risk Management Abstracts. In
addition, authors will be encouraged to publish results in academic
journals of their choice.
2013 Call for Research Proposals
The GARP Risk Management Research Program
will fund up to 5 selected research proposals in the amount of
$15,000 each. Grants are given under the condition that the
paper contains new and original work. For 2013, topics of
particular interest to the Research Committee include:
Sovereign risk management
Compensation practices and risk
Visualization and communication of
Portfolio credit risk management
The Research Committee will favor proposals
covering these topics, although other topics will be considered.
GARP will help authors connect with practitioners to obtain
relevant information or data, if such help is needed. Upon
completion, the authors will be required to present their paper at
a GARP event. Travel and lodging expenses associated with
presenting results at a GARP event will be reimbursed for one
author of each paper. Authors will be invited to include
their paper in a GARP research paper series. Authors will
retain the property rights over the paper. All publications
(including working papers) that are an outcome of the funding must
acknowledge the support in an introductory footnote.
Grants will be paid directly to the
researcher, unless otherwise requested. GARP will pay 50% of
the grant when we award the contract and the remainder upon
presentation of a suitably completed manuscript at a GARP event
within two years of the award.
Completed papers will be made available to
GARP members and any sponsors of the Research Program. This
distribution will not in any way preclude publication of the paper
in a journal of the researcher's choice. For information
