Asia Investor Achievement Awards
AsianInvestor ("AI") annual Awards for Achievement recognise fund houses that have demonstrated skill in institutional fund management, as well as all-round excellence among hedge funds, service providers and domestic businesses. Nominations are based purely on past performance. AI does however select winners on more qualitative factors so our awards reflect consistent skill. For the Annual awards, the methodology for AsianInvestor's Achievement Awards in institutional asset management involves two steps:

  • First: AI collects performance data from various consultants that is used to shortlist the top 3-4 candidates in each category. For one-year awards, AI looks at pure returns; for other awards, information ratios. AI picks the top three or four performers on that basis.
  • Step two: AI asks the candidates to pitch themselves and provide some areas (such as sources of alpha, strategy, team experience, innovation, testimonials, etc) to consider. After than it is purely an editorial decision, based on the pitches.

Firms that have demonstrated consistent performance in a particular asset class may have an edge and AI also values client testimonials highly.

The Asset ETF Awards
For The Asset Triple A Private Banking, Wealth Management, Investment and ETF Awards, the editors of The Asset adopt a rigorous approach in selecting the most deserving institutions and products. Point scores for both quantitative factors and qualitative factors are combined to determine a shortlist for each award. The Asset editorial team then conducts follow-up interviews and participates in presentations organized by the investors, investing institutions and product originators to make a final judgment.

R&I Fund Award
The R&I Fund Award is presented to provide reference information based on the past data R&I or QUICK Corp.
