About The Awards

This year marks the 17th BENCHMARK Fund of the Year Awards organized by WealthAsia Media (WAM) the publisher of Hong Kong’s oldest bi-lingual finance publication, and the creator of BlueOnion, the industry’s most disruptive fund research platform that focuses on Qualitative and Quantitative Performance as well as Sustainability.  WAM is profit-with-purpose organization who advocates best practices for Asia’s finance industry. The Fund of the Year Awards (FOYA) has gained a solid industry reputation for running distinguished awards safeguarded by powerful gatekeepers from global institutions, 

WAM has been on a mission to discover the capabilities of asset managers, MPF and ETF providers. The competition adopts a total investor approach to determine whether each contestant has investment principles and practices, designed to protect clients rather than solely for the interests of the company.

This award can also be interpreted as a buy-side driven and a client-centric initiative, where bank gatekeepers and service users such as asset owners, will dominate the decision-making process of the awards. The other purpose of this award is also to raise awareness of responsible investing and to drive better practices in responsible and sustainable investing.
