    Hello, Please see below for an exciting opportunity to be shared with your members. We hope to see a member of your community recognized as this year's winner of the Moskowitz Research Prize. The prestigious Moskowitz Prize recognizes outstanding quantitative research in sustainable and responsible investing. Since its launch in 1996, its winners have explored shareholder activism, socially responsible mutual funds, and social responsible investing as a catalyst to financial performance, among other topics. The prize is awarded by an expert panel of judges. The winner, announced at the annual SRI Conference, receives $5,000. Papers are judged on their: 1. Practical significance to practitioners of sustainable and/or responsible investment 2. Appropriateness and rigor of quantitative methods 3. Novelty of results The Moskowitz Prize is named for Milton Moskowitz, one of the first investigators to publish comparisons of the financial performance of screened and unscreened portfolios, including "The 100 Best Companies to Work for in America." Milton Moskowitz passed away in 2019 at the age of 91, but his legacy of pioneering responsible investing continues through the Moskowitz Research Prize. Submissions The 2019 Call for Papers is now open. Submit a PDF of your paper via by June 30, 2019 11:59PM PST (GMT -7).
