The Paul Woolley Centre for Capital Market Dysfunctionality is to hold a special afternoon workshop next month to discuss several upcoming research projects of particular relevance for super funds and managers, including a questioning of the role of active management and the proposal of a new regime for institutional investing.

The workshop, at the University of Technology Sydney on May 7, will be addressed by the Centre’s founder, London-based former funds manager Paul Woolley, along with local academics and former managers including professor Ron Bird, UTS, and adjunct professor Jack Gray. Gray will question the role of active management and Bird will propose a new regime for institutional investing.

Woolley will provide an analysis of momentum investing, which he has questioned before because of its tendency to fuel stock market bubbles. There will also be a separate discussion on the economic costs of mispriced markets.

Attendance is by invitation only, however, interested industry practitioners are invited to contact Yvonne Gray: email [email protected]
