The Fund Intelligence Group celebrated the top firms serving the institutional investor community with the inaugural edition of the Institutional Asset Management Awards.
Following a months-long judging process, FIG announced the winners of 18 award categories at a ceremony that took at The Pierre Hotel in Manhattan’s Upper East Side.
The honorees were selected by a prestigious panel of “buy”-side judges who cast votes for the top managers and consultants serving two different classes of investors: those with more than $1bn in assets and those with less. This distinction was made to reflect the diverging requirements of these different sized funds and the skillsets needed to succeed.
British financial writer and comedian Dominic Frisby served as the host of the ceremony, while Fund Intelligence Chief Content Officer Robert Dunn presented the winners with their awards.
It was Fund Intelligence’s distinct privilege to recognize the achievements of the people and firms providing these vital functions to investors.
Well done to all the nominees, and congratulations to the winners of the 2017 awards!
