announced today that Global Exchange employees Will Kinlaw and David
Turkington have been selected as the winners of the 2013 Peter L. Bernstein
Award for their article, “Liquidity and Portfolio Choice: A Unified Approach.”

Windham Capital Management and founding partner of State Street Associates,
and appeared in the Winter 2013 issue of The Journal of Portfolio Management,

quantify how much their unique portfolios benefit from liquidity or suffer
from illiquidity. It also shows how they can use this information to construct
portfolios that take liquidity considerations into account. The winning paper
was chosen through a blind review process by an independent committee that
included Gary Gastineau (ETF Consultants), William Goetzmann (Yale School of
Management) and Ronald Kahn (BlackRock).
