AsianInvestor is pleased to announce the first round of winners of our Asset Management Awards 2016, part 2: for investment performance.

Today we reveal the winners in our asset class awards for public markets, based on institutional fund performance data provided by Mercer and eVestment. The winners showed top-ranked performance in risk-adjusted terms over one, three and five years.

On Monday next week we will reveal our choices for fund house of the year across 14 markets or categories. We will conclude next Tuesday with our marquee award winners.

We have already announced the winners of part 1 of our awards, for service providers, as reported on day 1 and day 2.

All of the awards will be presented at a black-tie dinner at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Hong Kong, to be held on the evening of Thursday, May 26. For enquiries and sponsorship opportunities, please contact Terry Rayner on terry.rayner@haymarket.asia or +852 3175 1963.

Summaries for each winning entry and photographs from the dinner will be published in our June 2016 magazine. Congratulations to the winners.

Our awards ceremony forms the conclusion of AIWeek, a three-day industry event running from May 24-26 comprising workshops, panels and private discussion groups. It includes our 11th annual Asian Investment Summit featuring investors from the region’s top funds.
