Nick Tyrrell Research Prize

The Nick Tyrrell Research Prize was established in 2011 by INREV, the IPF and SPR, 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, and 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, and Dr Paul Kennedy, Head of Real Estate Strategy for the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority.

The 2017 Judging Panel comprised Dr Paul McNamara (Chair), Professor Marc Francke (University of Amsterdam), Professor Martin Hoesli (University of Geneva), Nick Mansley (University of Cambridge) and Andrew Smith, (Hearthstone Investments plc).
