Opalesque Industry Update - IAQF and SunGard would like to congratulate Dr. Douglas T. Breeden, William W. Priest, Jr. Professor of Finance and former Dean of Duke University's Fuqua School of Business, on being named the 2013 Financial Engineer of the Year.

The award will be presented to Dr. Breeden by IAQF senior fellow, former FEOY winner and Nobel laureate Robert C. Merton at a gala dinner on February 6, 2014 at The Museum of Mathematics in New York City. This evening is one of the premier events on the IAQF calendar and is a phenomenal opportunity to meet many of the most notable members of the financial engineering industry.

The annual IAQF/SunGard FEOY Award, established in 1993, recognizes individual contributions to the advancement of quantitative finance. Nominations are submitted by a nominating committee of approximately 100 people, consisting of all the IAQF governing boards. They are then reviewed in a two-step process by a selection committee of 25 members, including the IAQF board of directors and senior fellows. This year's selection committee was chaired by Dr. Robert Engle, an IAQF senior fellow, 2011 FEOY award winner and Nobel laureate.
