Virtual Event
& Watch Party

7:00 p.m. EDT


Presented by UCLA Anderson

On September 30, 2021, The G. and R. Loeb Foundation and UCLA Anderson invite you to experience a unique virtual event for the live announcement of this year's winners in 12 competition categories and celebration of two career achievement honorees.

Impact of the Pandemic
On the Loeb Foundation

For the second time in our 64-year history, the Loeb Awards will be free for all attendees. However, the inability for the Loeb Awards to have an in-person event this year has severely impacted the amount of monetary support that the Loeb Foundation relies upon to recognize the best in business journalism.

You can help alleviate the financial burden from pandemic on the Loeb Foundation by selecting the option to make a donation when completing your registration for this year's virtual event.

The G. and R. Loeb Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that operates from sponsorship and private support. Your donation will directly support Gerald Loeb's vision to encourage and support reporting on business and finance that will inform and protect the private investor and the general public.


The Legacy of Gerald Loeb

Gerald Martin Loeb was born in 1899 in San Francisco, California. He began his career in 1921, in the bond department of a securities firm. He moved to New York City in 1924 to help establish E.F. Hutton and eventually ascended to vice-chairman of the board. During Gerald Loeb’s career, he was a favorite of business and financial journalists for his willingness to be interviewed and was described as “probably the most quoted man on Wall Street” (Forbes Magazine 1955). He was also an author of two investment strategy books, a guest columnist for Forbes Magazine and widely considered a Wall Street iconoclast. In 1957, he established the G. and R. Loeb Foundation (under stewardship of the University of Connecticut) to present The Gerald Loeb Awards for Distinguished Business and Financial Journalism. In 1973, Mr. Loeb transferred the stewardship of the awards to UCLA Anderson School of Management under the deanship of Harold Williams.
