JoIM and CAIA Curriculum

I noticed that two papers (the ones by Lo and Mueller and by Esch - see link below) just picked as the best of 2010 in the Journal of Investment Management are in the current Level II curriculum for the CAIA Program; I think that reflects well on the quality of the CAIA curriculum. I couldn’t help but also notice that Esch works for the firm co-sponsoring the award, but I assume that the JoIM is self-respecting enough to avoid any bias, and I thought Esch’s paper was excellent in any case.

Not surprised, in general I found the content of the curriculum to be excellent and devoid of slack material.
