AsianInvestor is pleased to announce the winners of our third annual Korea Awards. Today we name winners of our marquee prizes for asset owners, distributors and fund house of the year, as well as service providers to the buy-side.

Earlier this week we announced the winners of our 2013 investment performance awards for Korea.

All the awards will be celebrated at the Westin Chosun Hotel in Seoul on Thursday, March 14 (you see photos from last year’s awards event by clicking here). For inquiries, please contact Dr Lee Insup at insup.lee@asianinvestor.net.
