InvestmentEurope Fund Manager of the Year Awards 2018/19 - winners revealed
Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management and Schroders came away as Group category winners at the InvestmentEurope Fund Manager of the Year Awards 2018/19, announced on the afternoon of 6 December in London.
The Awards, which this year took place at 1 Lombard Street in the City, celebrate not only the funds and groups that make up the asset management industry, and which are active in the key European markets served by InvestmentEurope, but also highlight buy side professionals that have achieved quantifiable rankings against peers.
A total of 18 product categories were awarded, as well as the Specialist Group of the Year, Group of the Year, and Personalities of the Year.
The Awards utilise a methodology involving a quantitative screening - provided by Lipper, part of Refinitiv - to develop shortlists for categories of funds, which are then subject to a qualitative assessment - performed using the SharingAlpha platform - to arrive at the winners.
A similar process - combining performance scores of fund selectors via the SharingAlpha platform alongside factors such length of service in the industry and AUM responsibilities - was used to identify this year's Personality Awards. Full details of all the winners will be included in a special supplement attached to the upcoming issue of the InvestmentEurope magazine.
