Monday we named the winners in fixed income. Yesterday we recognized the top houses in equity and Hong Kong balanced mandates.

Commentary on the awards will appear in the upcoming April/May edition of AsianInvestor, and the winners will be celebrated at a black-tie dinner at the Conrad Hotel in Hong Kong on Friday, May 20. We will announce our "Institutional Investor of the Year" at the dinner.
