The Bank of Canada is pleased to announce that Professor Francisco Ruge-Murcia from McGill University is the 2017 recipient of the Bank’s Fellowship Award.
Professor Ruge-Murcia is a renowned scholar in the fields of monetary economics and macroeconomics. His current research focuses on the implications of extreme events for monetary policy and financial markets, as well as on central bank decision making and communication.
“I am pleased to recognize, through this year’s Fellowship Award, Professor Ruge-Murcia’s remarkable capacity for bringing state-of-the-art research methods to bear on topics of direct interest to the Bank,” said Governor Stephen S. Poloz. “His record of academic excellence is remarkable, and I look forward to his continued high-quality and innovative work in the years ahead.”
The Bank is also pleased to present this year’s Governor’s Award to Assistant Professor Mikhail Simutin from the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto.
Professor Simutin is a leading academic whose work in financial economics has been published by top-ranked journals. His research interests include empirical asset pricing, mutual funds and risk and performance measurement.
“The Bank is proud to support Professor Simutin, whose ability to combine theoretical models with robust empirical analysis is already widely regarded throughout the academic, policy and practitioner communities,” said Governor Poloz. “His research at the intersection of asset pricing and financial intermediation is also particularly relevant to our mandate of promoting a sound financial system.”
