AsianInvestor is pleased to announce the second batch of our Asset Management Awards for 2021.
Today, we reveal the standout funds across 14 separate asset classes. These awards are primarily based upon quantitative performance data. We began by drawing shortlists of the best fund performers over one-, three- and five-year periods, and then conducted qualitative assessments of each fund candidate's investment team, aims and strategy.
Our congratulations to this year's asset class winners, and many thanks to all participants for taking the time and effort to participate in our awards this year.
In addition, we would like to thank eVestment and Mercer for providing us with the comprehensive investment fund performance data that we used to assess these awards.
We will follow on Tuesday (May 4) by revealing the outstanding fund houses across the major Asia markets and conclude on Wednesday with the Best Marquee winners, including the Best Asia Fund House and Asset Manager of the Year. And please click here if you would like to find out the identities of this year's Best Asset Service Providers.
