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
