On December 1, 2016, we held our annual Leadership Awards event in Sydney, Australia to honor the exceptional commitment that individuals and companies have demonstrated in the pursuit of education and building knowledge in the alternative investment space. Corporate Recognition Awards were presented to Willis Towers Watson and Hong Kong’s Ryan Communication. Professor Stephen Brown from the Monash Business School received CAIA’s Annual Award for Academic Excellence in Alternative Investment Research. Professor Brown also presented an educational keynote. CAIA CEO Bill Kelly, and Managing Directors Deborah McLean (External Relations) and Joanne Murphy (Asia Pacific Office) joined the honorees and CAIA Australia Chapter Head David George to celebrate.
