    The Global Risk Institute in Financial Services (GRI) is calling for proposals for 1-3 year research projects on the effects of low interest rates on asset allocation. The total amount earmarked for each project is CAD 150,000 per year. The proposal deadline is September 1, 2014. This grant focuses on answering the question, “What is the impact of low-for-long interest rates on asset management strategies?” The purpose of the project is to determine whether a low interest rate environment leads to increasingly leveraged strategies and/or new asset allocations such as Non-Financial Assets. Are the implied consequences and risks of a low interest rate environment and highly correlated asset classes well assessed, measured and accounted for? The core deliverable of this research project will be at least one academic paper and a final report. The Call for Proposals guideline can be found at and any inquiries can be sent to
