Rotman ICPM Sponsors SWF Project

Ashby Monk

Here’s a bit of good news for a Monday morning. Gordon and I have just received a new round of funding to keep the Oxford SWF Project alive for another year. It’s a gratifying development, as it means that there are at least a few people who like the work we’ve been doing over the past two years and would like to see it continue.

Specifically, these people are at The Rotman International Centre for Pension Management, which is within the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management. Frankly, we’re thrilled to have Rotman ICPM on board, as they have a remarkable research program that has plenty of synergies with our own. Here is some background:

“The Rotman International Centre for Pension Management (ICPM) is a research centre at the Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto. The Centre is supported by an international consortium of twenty-six major pension organizations. The mission of Rotman ICPM is to be a catalyst for improving the management of pension systems and organizations around the world. This mission is achieved through funding relevant research projects, organizing discussion forums, and publishing the Rotman International Journal of Pension Management.”

Specifically, Rotman ICPM wants us to examine the design and governance of pension reserve funds. So we’ll be doing some papers and case studies on the various funds around the world next year. In addition, we’ll continue to maintain this website. It should be a lot of fun. Three cheers for Rotman!

    Congratulations, the work that you guys are doing is a public service (even if the public in this case may be a very small subset), and I’m glad that funding has come through for you.
