For a look back at all of last year's winners, across 15 different categories, please visit the 2016 Savvy Investor Awards page. The winning paper overall was this one from Robeco:

Expected Returns 2017-2021: It's Always Darkest Just Before Dawn (Robeco)
The paper examined a variety of key issues for global markets and set out Robeco's forecasts for returns from the world's major asset classes over the five years 2017-2021. Despite the negative surprises experienced in 2016, Robeco presented an optimistic view of the future, arguing that a gradual monetary normalization is likely to unfold over time.
