Readers, I need more of your input for a research project.

As many of you are aware, my primary passion is serving as the team leader for Alpha Architect. That said, I still conduct “serious” academic research with various colleagues in my “free time.”

The study is being conducted in conjunction with academic researchers from the University of Houston, Utah State University, and Creighton University.

I only need 5 minutes of your time!

The study consists of a brief 5 minute online survey.  Your responses will be strictly confidential and they will only be viewed by the research team.  As a participant in the study, you will also have access to our aggregated results and findings when the study is completed.

If you know of other buy-side professionals who might be interested in participating in this study, please feel free to invite them to participate by forwarding this message to them.

I personally thank you for participating in this study.  Your responses will help to greatly improve our understanding of emerging technologies in the buy-side industry.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
