** Announcement **
Fund Manager of the Year Awards will now take place online!
In response to the coronavirus crisis, Investment Week has made the decision to cancel the annual awards dinner and will instead announce the winners of the Fund Manager of the Year Awards at a special online ceremony on the same date, 25th June.
All the judging and awards presentations will now be moved online over the coming months. Shortlists are currently being constructed using Morningstar data and we will be in touch with shortlisted groups at the start of April.
They will then have time to fill in the fund questionnaires before the judging days later in May. We will announce the full shortlists later in May and then winners will be honoured at a special online ceremony on 25 June (more details to follow soon).
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Join us to celebrate 25 years of the awards!
Thursday 25th June, Live Online
FUND MANAGER OF THE YEAR AWARDS 2020
Investment Week is delighted to be hosting the 25th Fund Manager of the Year Awards on Thursday 25 June at a special live online ceremony.
This year's ceremony is a key part of Investment Week's 25th anniversary celebrations in 2020 and we will be presenting awards for Outstanding Fund Manager over 25 Years and Outstanding Contribution over 25 Years on the night.
A flagship event for the investment industry for a quarter of a century, the Fund Manager of the Year Awards honour fund managers and groups at the top of their game who have demonstrated consistently strong performance for investors and whom the judging panel believe have the potential to continue to outperform in the future.
New awards this year include separate categories for China and India funds to reflect interest from Investment Week readers in single strategy vehicles in these regions. Meanwhile, Investment Week has also acknowledged the investment industry is undergoing a significant transformation in terms of its approach to sustainable and ESG investing. This year for the first time we are going to ask shortlisted groups explicitly about sustainability and ESG factors for the individual fund and group categories, which will then form part of the judges’ qualitative assessments. We have also introduced a new group category for Outstanding Achievement in Sustainable and ESG Investing to recognise progress in this area.
We hope you can join us at this year’s awards for what promises to be a very special event in the investment industry calendar.
