We want to thank all the participants at The Gatekeepers Forum 2020. It is our first to go all virtual, and we are proud to report that all the sessions are satisfactorily delivered. 52 sessions were delivered by 53 senior fund house representatives, with 49 judges and gatekeepers occupying 260 seats over 3 days. Stay tuned to the final announcements of the winners as the judging panel enters into Phase II of the judging process. For details of the awards, please visit BENCHMARK FUND OF THE YEAR AWARDS. The Gatekeepers’ Forum is a sub-set of the judging process with four to six jurors holding a two-way conversation with the manager of a contesting strategy. The forum allows the contestants’ CIO or Portfolio Manager to showcase how they’re running a profitable strategy and respond to technical questions raised by the gatekeepers.
The Gatekeepers’ Forum is a highly curated platform that connects both the buy and sell-side of funds and empowers gatekeepers from Private Banks, Institutions, Foundations, Single and Multi-Family Offices to look under the hood before they invest. Another purpose of The Gatekeepers’ Forum is to promote investment clarity and transparency. The interaction between senior fund house representatives and our jurors can reveal the underlying idea generation and philosophy of the contesting strategies from multiple perspectives, particularly from a qualitative and ESG perspective. Participants who are present at the forum receive Level III scoring points. Each juror has up to 10 points to allocate to each participant. Only jurors with a valid invitation link can select the sessions they are interested in. The forum was held virtually this year, with managers and jurors joining all over the world.
