AsianInvestor is pleased to announce the winners of its 2011 Investment Performance Awards for institutional funds management. Today we name our marquee winners as well as winners in fixed income.

Tomorrow we will cover equity and balanced strategies, including ETFs and Reits. Due to the Easter holiday we will continue on Tuesday, April 26 with the best onshore fund houses, and conclude on Wednesday with the winners in alternative investments.

Our awards for fund manager of the year, and fund manager of the year (alternatives), will be announced on the evening of Thursday, May 19, at our black-tie dinner. This year it will be held at the Conrad Hotel in Hong Kong. For enquiries and sponsorship opportunities, please email Rebekka Kristin, or call her on +852 2122 5203.
