The Nick Tyrrell Research Prize was established in 2011 to acknowledge innovative and high quality, applied research in real estate investment. The Prize is in memory of the work and industry contribution of Nick Tyrrell, who passed away in August 2010. Nick Tyrrell was Head of Research and Strategy and a Managing Director in J.P. Morgan Asset Management’s European real estate division. His research work was characterised by a combination of academic rigour and practical relevance.
The Prize includes a cash prize of £2,000, the opportunity to present and discuss the paper at a seminar organised by the sponsoring organisations and the inclusion of the article (or a summary thereof) in one or more of the sponsoring organisations’ publications. The Prize is funded by the Nick Tyrrell Memorial Fund, which is supported by the three sponsoring organisations.
The Prize is currently managed by Rita Gosrani of the SPR and Dr Paul Kennedy.
The 2019 Judging Panel comprised Andrew Smith (Hearthstone Investments Plc) (Chair), Professor Marc Francke (University of Amsterdam), Dr. Alexandra Krystalogianni (Allianz Real Estate GmbH), Nick Mansley (University of Cambridge).
