AFAANZ Finance SIG and InSPiR2eS


Friday 10 December 2021

The best pitch will win $1,000!!

AFAANZ’s Finance SIG and InSPiR2eS  are holding a shark tank pitch event inviting research teams to propose, either:

  • a replication of an important recent finance or capital markets accounting study, or

  • an original research project.

The shark tank event has 3 (initial) stages

  • an EOI
  • written 2-page pitch (based on Faff’s (2021, SSRN)
  • oral pitch presentation (based on the written pitch) to a “shark panel” at the event

Following the first two stages, selected teams will be invited to pitch their research idea to the “sharks” (i.e., a panel of journal editors). After each pitch, each shark editor will give a “thumbs up” or “thumbs down”.  In those cases where more than one shark editor is interested, a “competitive process” will ensue to achieve the ideal match of pitch to journal.  Ultimately, subject to an agreed offer by one of the shark editors, pitches presented at event will be invited to execute the research replication project or original project, and publish the resultant completed paper in a future issue of the “winning” shark’s journal.  

In addition to the opportunity to publish the research, the best pitch presented at the event will be awarded a cash prize of $1,000 and will also advance for further consideration in the InSPiR2eS Global Pitching Research Competition.
