Call for papers: Residential Seminar 2021

Bailbrook Hotel

Bath, UK

21-23 November 2021


The Institute for Quantitative Investment Research (INQUIRE) aims to promote investment excellence through dialogue between investment management practitioners and academic researchers. We now invite submissions of completed research papers for presentation at the 2021 Inquire Residential Seminar.


We welcome submissions of innovative papers in any area of research relevant to investment management practice. We will give preference to papers connected to our main conference theme Investing in the 2022 real interest rate environment. Papers could address topics such as the asset pricing effects of low interest rates, unexpected inflation, and the term structures of equity and bond premia. However, submissions are also encouraged in other research areas relevant to investing in bonds, equities and alternative asset classes, including behavioural finance, climate finance, pension fund management and risk management.


Papers will be selected by the Inquire Council and authors notified by 30 September 2021. We will invite the authors of selected papers to present their research in-person, and Inquire will contribute towards the costs of attendance. However, in the event that in-person attendance at the conference is not possible, we may offer the possibility of virtual attendance and presentations. You should indicate your constraints and preferences relating to in-person versus virtual presentation when you submit your paper(s).


The Inquire Prize Committee will award a £3000 prize to the authors of the best paper presented.


Please submit completed research papers along with a two page executive summary by email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.


The deadline for submissions is 17 September 2021.
