2. investment management analysts - both practitioners and advocates - focused on the spectrum of issues involved in designing and building investment portfolios. This includes those from private wealth management firms, investment research and consulting houses, and funds management, superannuation and investment platform companies.
CE ACCREDITATION: 4.00 CE HOURS
The 2018 IMR Workshop has been assessed and accredited for 4.00 CE hours that can be used to help meet the CE/CPD requirements of 15 regulators, associations, institutes and designations - including ASIC RG104/105/146 CE requirements and CIMA® certificants’ CE commitment.
Now in its 10th year, the annual Investment Management Research Workshop showcases early stage research in the area of investments to a practitioner and academic audience. The format provides a useful forum for very active communication between attendees and presenters.
The Workshop is a companion program to the 2-day IMR Conference each September.
Both the Workshop and the Conference are initiatives of the Investment Management Research Program which is presented by Portfolio Construction Forum, in collaboration with faculty of the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) Business School.

ABOUT THE IMR PROGRAM
The Investment Management Research (IMR) Program aims to advance investment management research. It is presented by Portfolio Construction Forum, in collaboration with faculty of the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) Business School. It succeeds the UTS Paul Woolley Centre that was led by UTS Professor Ron Bird since its foundation in 2007 - and Professor Bird continues as a Director of the IMR Program.
The IMR Program is a series of initiatives that give rare opportunity for the full spectrum of investment management analysts – academics, professional investors, consultants, practitioners and advocates – to come together to debate and advance key investment management research issues.
Specifically, the IMR Program focuses on three topics
that are relevant to the Investing knowledge domain...
... across three core activities:
1. Research: Commissioned research that furthers the efficiency and effectiveness of investment management;
2. Debate: IMR Workshop (April) and IMR Conference (October) – investment research presentations and papers from a faculty of academic and practitioner experts;
3. Educate: Investment Management Analyst Course (IMAC) – core to the global Certified Investment Management Analyst (CIMA) certification program, and fundamental to quality investment management analyst knowledge, skills and expertise.
