Best Paper Award Sponsor

American Association of Individual Investors (AAII)

James Cloonan, Ph.D., founded AAII in 1978 because he firmly believed that individual investors armed with effective investment education  materials  and a bit of dedication could outperform the popular market averages. Over forty years later, the 150,000 members of AAII report investment returns that are consistently higher than those of the stock market as a whole. Further reinforcing Dr. Cloonan's point, AAII's Shadow Stock and Mutual Fund Portfolios (real portfolios used to teach members about investing) have had lower risk scores and better returns than the S&P 500 for the last 10 years. According to Cloonan, "AAII's purpose is to assist individuals in becoming effective managers of their own assets through programs of education, information and research."
