To ensure that INQUIRE continues to meet its goal of bridging the gap between investment practice and academic theory, Council is advised by a panel of senior industry professionals, selected for their experience and investment insight, while bearing in mind the need, in this constantly developing field, for a diversity of backgrounds and views.


The panel aims to:

  • provide advice and input on seminar format and content
  • provide advice on the direction of sponsorship of research and its efficient delivery, and on academic relations generally
  • assist in the recruitment and retention of sponsors
  • advise generally on policy and related issues

The panel meets twice a year.
