Citywire's top newly rated managers in November

We look at the newly-minted AAA managers who are running funds registered in Asia

Overview

Citywire Fund Manager Ratings highlight alpha generating fund managers over the past 36 months. In this gallery, we look at the top three newly-minted AAA managers who are running funds registered for sale in Singapore and/or Hong Kong.

The AAA rating is the highest accolade conferred to these outperforming managers based on their risk adjusted returns. Our ratings are purely quantitative and analysis is based on information ratio.

However, we call it the Citywire Manager Ratio as it takes into account career moves and all the funds a manager runs.

In November 2017, only 414 managers out of a database of over 15,500 managers received the AAA rating.
