About Our Seminars

In the Spring and Autumn of each year, Sponsors of The Q Group® attend and participate in seminars in various locations in the United States. These seminars present new, effective investment techniques being developed by academicians and practitioners. The conferences offer the delegates an opportunity to interact and discuss each presentation with known experts in the field. Many attendees are themselves authorities in the field and are encouraged to present their own research studies at these programs. Seminars are topical and usually revolve around one or more central themes.

Periodically, The Q Group® and its sister organizations, INQUIRE-UK and INQUIRE-Europe hold a joint meeting to exchange ideas and interact on a personal level. Each of the organizations contribute speakers and presentations to these events.

The Q Group® meetings are designed to explore topics of current interest to Sponsors. For example recent programs have focused on:

  • BEHAVIOR, NOISE AND EXCESS RETURNS
  • BETA, DIVERSIFICATION AND INNOVATION
  • TRADING AND EXTREME MARKET STRESS
  • HEALTH, WEALTH AND MARKETS
  • For summaries of past seminars, check the “Seminar Summaries” section of the website.
    From time to time, papers are also delivered by Fellows of The Q Group, most of whom are winners of the Nobel Prize in Economics.

THE ROGER F. MURRAY PRIZE

Each year The Q Group awards prizes to those who have presented the best seminar papers. The prizes have fostered vigorous competition among the speakers and produce consistently exceptional presentations. The prizes have attracted many experts who wish to present their state-of-the-art investment concepts at The Q Group’s seminars.
