Guests from across the region gathered at the Ritz-Carlton Millenia in Singapore on November 30 as AsianInvestor handed out its annual Institutional Excellence Awards.

The awards honoured institutions by country, category and proficiency, as well as picking out individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to the industry.

The big winner of the night was Taiwan's Bureau of Labor Funds, which picked up three awards: for best pension fund and the innovation award, as well as the outstanding individual contribution award for its director general, Huang Chao-hsi.

We present a gallery of photographs from the event.
