The Established Researcher Award recognizes professors who have received national or international recognition for their research contributions to the Telfer School of Management over the previous five years. We’re delighted to present this year’s award to Professor Fabio Moneta, a prominent figure in finance whose outstanding work has brought substantial attention to the Telfer school.
Since arriving in 2019, Moneta has played a major role at Telfer. In addition to serving as primary coordinator for the Responsible Wealth Transition research cluster, he’s been highly involved in student research training.

Numerous PhD and MSc students have benefited from his mentorship. For example, he collaborated with a PhD student on a working paper that’s been presented at various conferences. Moneta continually goes above and beyond to enhance the program and prepare his students for their future endeavours.
