Day 1: Investment Performance Awards 2012

Today we name the best in global, emerging and Asian long-only asset classes.
Day 1: Investment Performance Awards 2012

AsianInvestor is pleased to announce the winners of its 2012 Investment Performance Awards for institutional funds management. Today we name the best long-only managers in a range of asset classes, including Reits and ETFs.

We drew up a shortlist of candidates for most categories based on institutional performance data provided by eVestment Alliance and Mercer, based on both nominal and risk-adjusted returns over one-, three- and five-year periods. AsianInvestor thanks eVestment Alliance and Mercer for their support.

From tomorrow, we will name the best asset managers in each market; the best performers in alternative investments, including hedge funds and private equity; and conclude on Thursday with our marquee award winners.

The awards will be presented at our annual black-tie dinner, held at the Conrad Hotel in Hong Kong on Thursday, May 24. For enquiries and sponsorship opportunities, please e-mail Rebekka Kristin or call her on +852 2122 5203.

Summaries of the awards presented at our dinner will be published in the June edition of AsianInvestor magazine. Congratulations to the winners.
