Currently, AMRA’s primary area of focus is the intersection of public and private markets and the role of hedge funds and other active managers in the financial intermediation process.

We invite submission of theoretical and empirical research in the field of active portfolio management at all stages of completion (including work-in-progress and extended abstracts).
