Amundi Pioneer Prizes (formerly Amundi Smith Breeden Prizes)

Amundi Smith Breeden was combined with Amundi Pioneer Asset Management in 2017 and is now named Amundi Pioneer.

The Amundi Pioneer Prizes are awarded annually for the top three papers in The Journal of Finance in any area other than corporate finance. The winning papers are chosen by the Associate Editors of The Journal of Finance. The papers eligible for the prizes for a given year are all those that appeared in the first five issues of that year and in the December issue from the previous year.

The Amundi Pioneer prizes are generously funded by Amundi Pioneer. The Amundi Pioneer prize for the best paper in The Journal of Finance is $25,000 and the two prizes for distinguished papers are $10,000 each. The Journal of Finance and the American Finance Association are grateful to Amundi Pioneer for continuing to support the prizes and providing additional funding to increase the size of the awards.

Brattle Group Prizes in Corporate Finance

The Brattle Group Prizes are awarded annually for outstanding papers on corporate finance. The winning papers are chosen by the Associate Editors of The Journal of Finance. The papers eligible for the prizes for a given year are all those that appeared in the first five issues of that year and in the December issue from the previous year. The prizes are awarded at the AFA’s annual meeting by a representative of The Brattle Group, Inc. The amounts of the prizes are $25,000 for first prize and $10,000 each for two distinguished papers. The Journal of Finance and the American Finance Association are grateful to The Brattle Group, Inc. for continuing to support the prizes and providing additional funding to increase the size of the awards..

Administration of the Brattle Group Prize is the responsibility of the Editor of The Journal of Finance and is carried out in conjunction with the selection of the Amundi Smith Breeden Prizes. Associate Editors vote for the best three corporate finance papers (for the Brattle Group Prizes) and the best three other papers (for the Amundi Smith Breeden Prizes). The papers receiving the most votes in their categories receive the prizes; however, a paper may not win in both categories. If a paper should be selected in both the Brattle and Amundi Smith Breeden categories, the editor can call for a second round of voting in which papers are allocated by him or her to one category.
