Honoring the best of the best in the asset management industry in Asia
Reaching a significant milestone of its 5th anniversary this year, Benchmark Fund of the Year Awards has earned the reputation of an authoritative reference for fund investors due to the rigorous vetting by an independent judging panel who act as gatekeepers for investors’ guidance and protection.
The Awards recognizes best-in-class asset management firms in mutual funds, MPF, and ETF for their in-house capabilities and fund performances. Judging is based on six pillars that are key indicators of high-quality asset management, viz, investment philosophy and process, securities selection and sell discipline, portfolio construction, risk and performance management, environmental, social and governance (ESG) integration into the investment process, and operations. Contestants attend The Gatekeepers’ Forum to make a presentation of their capability and answer questions from the panel who will be in a better position to evaluate them from multiple perspectives.
