  •  Honors for Faculty Research

    Wednesday, Oct. 5, 2011 10:27 AM

    Yongtae Kim (ACTG) and Meir Statman (FNCE) received Honorable Mention during the 2011 Moskowitz Prize for Socially Responsible Investing award announcement on October 3. SCU has now three faculty members whose work has earned recognition by the international group over the 15 years in which the Prize has been awarded, one of the few business schools with multiple winners on campus.

    The 2011 paper by Kim and Statman, “Do Corporations Invest Enough in Environmental Responsibility?” follows back-to-back Moskowitz Prize awards to SCU faculty members Hoje Jo in 2009 and Statman in 2008. Statman also received an additional honorable mention in 2005.

    The Moskowitz Prize is the only global award recognizing quantitative research in socially responsible investing (SRI). Papers are reviewed by an expert panel of judges from both academic and industry circles, using criteria such as practical significance to practitioners of SRI, rigor of quantitative methods, and novelty of results. The Prize is announced at the “SRI in the Rockies” conference each fall. Learn more about the Moskowitz Prize here ussif.org/resources/moskowitz.cfm

  •  Statman Book Signing on November 11

    Wednesday, Nov. 10, 2010 12:08 PM

    Finance Professor Meir Statman will sign his new book, "What Investors Really Want," at a reception on Thursday, November 11, in Lucas Hall.

    The book will be available for purchase at the event, and Professor Statman will give a brief talk about the topics he covers in the book. RSVP at www.scu.edu/business/finance/statmanbook.cfm

    Builiding on his research as a behavioral finance scholar, "What Investors Really Want" explores the real world of investing, examining the mind-sets and motivations behind major money decisions. Statman reveals:

    • How our desire for free investment lunches can leave us with no lunches
    • How our desire to win the investment game can turn us into losers
    • How we struggle between spending too much and spending too little
    • How to know what's really important in life
    • How to recognize and confront the regret that accompanies losses

    Meir Statman is the Glenn Klimek Professor of Finance at the Leavey School of Business, Santa Clara University, and Visiting Professor at Tilburg University in the Netherlands.

    His research on behavioral finance has been supported by the National Science Foundation, CFA Institute, and Investment Management Consultants Association (IMCA) and has been published in the Journal of Finance, Financial Analysts Journal, Journal of Portfolio Management, and many other publications. A recipient of two IMCA Journal Awards, the Moskowitz Prize for Best Paper on Socially Responsible Investing, and three Graham and Dodd Awards, Statman consults with many investment companies and presents his work to academics and professionals in the U.S. and abroad.
