The China Asset Management Academy (CAMA) of Central University of Finance and Economics (CUFE) was established with the approval of the school's office meeting in January 2016. Taking advantage of CUFE’s first-class discipline—finance, CAMA is committed to conduct independent academic research on the practice of China’s asset management market. The academy’s aim is to provide research-based suggestions about the development of China's asset management market to policy makers, and deliver consulting services to Chinese asset management institutions.
In recent years, researchers of CAMA have successively won a number of state-level research grants, including "The Legalization of Venture Investing and Systematic Environment Construction under the Background of Innovation Driven Development Strategy", "Q-theory, Investor Sentiment, and Asset Pricing: From a Big Data Perspective", "Noise or Information? Research on Stock Forum Based on the Theory of Attention and Social Network", etc. Notably, CAMA’s researchers have been keeping publishing papers on top journals like Journal of Accounting and Public Policy, Financial Management, Journal of Financial Economics, Review of Financial Studies, Journal of Applied Econometrics, Journal of International Money and Finance, Journal of Empirical Finance, Journal of Banking & Finance, etc.
Additionally, the academy has been continuously carrying out academic activities. By the end of 2019, CAMA had held five large-scale seminars, 19 academic lectures, and one reading party on “Empirical Asset Pricing: The Cross Section of Stock Returns”. In 2017, the academy hosted the 2017 China accounting and finance annual conference. On top of that, CAMA provides data on the three-, four-, and five-factors of China's stock market to the public for free, which has been welcomed and widely used by scholars and practitioners.
