About the Institute

The New Frontier Institute for Asset Management in Practice is designed to be a scholarly repository and resource for academics, investment professionals, and investors with interest in understanding the evolution of quantitative asset management beginning in the late 20th century. Dr. Richard Michaud’s fifty-year legacy of published research and professional presentations, representing the foundational archive of the Institute, reflects the quantitative methods and procedures that have been put into practice since New Frontier Advisors was established. The Institute also archives critical contributions by Robert Michaud and Dr. David Esch. The Institute’s mission is to promote authoritative research on asset management by bridging the gap between the academy and the workbench with cutting-edge research in daily practice.
