AsianInvestor is pleased to announce the winners of its 2012 Service Provider Awards, recognising excellence in supporting the buy-side in Asia Pacific. Tomorrow is a public holiday, so we resume our awards announcements on Wednesday with prime broking. Later in the week come the winners in legal, accounting, index and trading & execution services.
