THE ROBIN COSGROVE PRIZEThe Ethics in Finance Robin Cosgrove Prize promotes greater awareness
of ethics, trust and integrity among young finance professionals and advanced students of finance. The Prize aims to:
• advance the vision of ethics in finance
• stimulate a global debate among young people regarding ethical standards in finance
• encourage young people to be agents for change, going beyond compliance to promoting core values in their professional behaviour Candidates less than 35 years old are invited to submit written papers (not previously published) on the theme “Innovative Ideas for Ethics in Finance”.
There are two parallel competitions: a global prize where papers may be submitted in English or French, and a regional Ibero-American prize, for papers in Spanish or Portuguese. Independent juries comprised of distinguished finance professionals and respected academics evaluate the papers submitted.
The 2012-2013 prize competition will be launched in June 2012, with a final date for submission of papers on 31 March 2013. The prizes will be awarded at a special ceremony in the third quarter of 2013.
The prize is an ideal tool for staff development and training. Many major commercial banks and the IMF promote awareness of the Robin Cosgrove Prize through their internal communications networks. The prize encourages young professionals to be more aware of the important role of integrity and ethical behaviour in the finance sector in the private and the public sector, as well as not-for-profit organisations across the world.
The prize honours the vision of Robin, a young investment banker, who sadly died aged 31. He believed that high standards of integrity and good ethical practice were essential for sustainable finance and for the common good.

Globethics.net is a worldwide ethics network based in Geneva, with an international Board of Foundation of eminent persons. It provides an electronic platform for dialogue, reflection and action on ethics. Its central instrument is the internet site www.globethics.net. Globethics.net has
Access to ethics resources: to ensure that people in all regions of the world are empowered to reflect and act on ethical issues. In order to ensure access to knowledge resources in applied ethics, Globethics.net has developed its Globethics.net Library, the leading global digital library on ethics. Globethics.net took this initiative to ensure that persons – especially in Africa, Asia and Latin-America – have access to good quality and up to date knowledge resources on ethics. The founding conviction of Globethics.net was that more equal access to knowledge resources in the field of applied ethics will enable persons and institutions from developing and transition economies to become more visible and audible in the global discourse on ethics. There is no cost involved in using the library. Individuals only need to register (free of charge) as participants on the Globethics.net website to get access to all the full text journals, encyclopedias, e-books and other resources in the library.
Networking: The registered participants form a global community of people interested in or specialists in ethics. It offers participants on its website the opportunity to join or form electronic working groups for purposes of networking or collaborative research.
Research: The international secretariat, based in Geneva, currently concentrates on three topics of research: Business and Economic Ethics, Interreligious Ethics and Responsible Leadership. The knowledge produced through the working groups and research finds their way into collections and publications in the two series Globethics.net Series and Globethics.net Focus that are also made available online for free in the Globethics.net Library.

Trust and Ethics in Finance Innovative Ideas from the Robin Cosgrove Prize The values that guide finance professionals and the core role played by trust in the modern finance industry have been the dominant themes of the best papers submitted for the Robin Cosgrove Prize since it was launched in 2006. Inviting young people to submit innovative ideas to advance ethical approaches to the world of finance in its many manifestations has stimulated a global debate on the role of ethics and integrity in finance. It is important to note that the prize was launched before the topic of ethics in finance became fashionable. It is not a reactive exercise to the current crisis. The aim is to prompt a shift in thinking throughout the world of finance – the fresh ideas submitted for the prize have global relevance.
The twenty-three essays in this volume come from young researchers on six continents; their innovative ideas will contribute to future-oriented ethical solutions.
