AsianInvestor is pleased to announce the winners of our second annual Korea Awards. Today we name winners for investment performance, including long-only and alternative strategies.

Tomorrow we will announce our marquee award winners, as well as the best among service providers to the buy-side. Marquee awards include fund house of the year, and awards for institutional investors and distributors.

The awards will be celebrated at the Westin Chosun Hotel in Seoul on Thursday, March 15. (You can see photos from last year’s awards event here.) For inquiries, please contact Dr. Lee Insup at [email protected].

A full write-up explaining our decisions for each winner, along with photographs from the dinner, will be published in AsianInvestor magazine’s April edition.

Note that ‘international’ awards refer to locally domiciled strategies, and that fund house total AUM refers to onshore assets.

Congratulations to the winners.
