In March 2012, he was appointed to The Rockefeller Foundation’s Board of Trustees.[6]

Leibowitz has authored several books and more than 150 articles, 10 of which have received the Financial Analysts Journal's Graham and Dodd Award of Excellence.[7] His most well-known work (co-authored with Sidney Homer) is Inside the Yield Book, first published in 1972 and reissued in 2004, a work which, according to Frank Fabozzi, "transformed the markets’ understanding of bonds".[8] He was instrumental in developing the dedicated portfolio theory in the 1980s.
