The team at Institutional Asset Manager is very pleased to announce the winners of this year’s Institutional Asset Manager Awards, judged by their industry peers.

The winners, in this inaugural year for the Institutional Asset Manager Awards, represent the best in the global asset management industry, from managers to service providers, covering all parts of the asset management ecosystem.

Award winners have been selected by majority vote, through an online poll of the entire Institutional Asset Manager readership of key investment industry participants – which encompasses asset managers, asset owners, allocators, intermediaries, advisers, service providers and counterparties.

This means that winning an Institutional Asset Manager award constitutes a vote of recognition from your peers and a significant achievement, particularly so in what was an extraordinary year.

The winners are invited to a virtual awards networking ceremony that will include a welcome address from Institutional Asset Manager editor, Madeleine Taylor, and a ‘fireside chat’ Q&A interview with John Claisse, chief executive of Albourne, which will be conducted by managing editor Nick Evans.
