Citywire Asia Awards: Hong Kong winners revealed

Citywire Asia Awards: Hong Kong winners revealed

The wait is finally over. Hong Kong’s best managers and groups were revealed at the Citywire Asia awards ceremony at the Landmark Mandarin Oriental on Thursday evening.

Twenty four winners were announced across different bond and equity categories. Twelve awards went to the best performing fund groups, while another 12 were handed to individual fund managers.

Among the top group award winners were Schroders, BlackRock and Aberdeen, while Samantha McLemore from Legg Mason, Ashley Perrott from UBS GAM and Joohee An from Mirae Asset Global Investments ranked among the individual winners.

The awards ceremony, attended by some of the territory’s well-known fund managers and selectors, showcased the top performers across various equities and bonds categories.

The awards are based on Citywire’s unique performance data for individual fund managers and asset management groups running funds available in Hong Kong.

As Frank Talbot, deputy head of research - investment research, noted, ‘The manager awards showcase those individuals available to Hong Kong investors with the very best risk return profiles.’

Citywire tracks and rates fund managers in 39 countries across the globe. This amounts to 12,000 fund managers running 19,000 portfolios in more than 200 investment sectors.

Citywire has been following individual fund managers as they move from group to group for more than 15 years. The group and manager ratings are done on a purely quantitative basis.
