In 1995, the Fixed Income Analysts Society established a Hall of Fame to recognize the lifetime achievements of outstanding practitioners in the advancement of the analysis of fixed-income securities and portfolios. Inductees will have made major contributions to the advancement of fixed-income analysis and portfolio management. These contributions may be academic, business-related or FIASI-related. The Board of Directors determines the annual inductees.
Martin L. Leibowitz, PhD was selected as the first inductee for his work facilitating the development of mortgage- backed securities, fixed-income indices, zero coupon bonds, portfolio dedication and immunization and bond portfolio measurement tools. Over the past 19 years, 44 members have joined the FIASI Hall of Fame.
