About Best of the Best Awards

Asia Asset Management’s annual Best of the Best Awards have made their mark on the asset management and pensions industry by recognising the most outstanding players in the fund management business in Asia for the past 16 years.

In order to recognise the leading lights from the pension and asset management industry for the 17th successive year, we will begin accepting submissions for the 2020 Best of the Best Awards in mid-November.

In keeping up with the latest trends and developments taking place in the Asian asset management arena, AAM has added several new award categories this year, to reflect in particular the growing significance of responsible investing and technology in the industry.

The winners will be announced in mid-January 2020 and selectively profiled in the April 2020 pull-out Awards section of our monthly AAM journal. A dinner and awards presentation ceremony is set to take place on Thursday, March 26, 2020 at the Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong. 

A separate dinner and awards presentation ceremony will be held in Singapore on Thursday, April 2, 2020 to honour award winners from ASEAN markets and India. More details will be provided in mid-January 2020.

Please note: The deadline for submissions this year is Friday, December 13, 2019 (close of business in Hong Kong).

Award Categories

The 2020 Best of the Best Awards are divided into four categories: Performance, CountryRegional and ASEAN awards.

The PERFORMANCE awards are dedicated to measuring the accomplishments of each company based on the performance statistics of funds being managed. The top performer among the submissions received will be awarded. If your company’s funds have performed exceptionally well for the last three, five, seven and ten years, you are invited to enter your company as a contender for the awards in this section.

The COUNTRY awards are focused on the comparison of achievements and skill of each fund management company against other companies from the same country. To draw out the best from each country, this section will look at the company’s overall impact in shaping the nation’s asset management sector. In this section, we will acknowledge participants from the following countries, in alphabetical order:

  • Brunei
  • China
  • Hong Kong
  • India
  • Indonesia
  • Japan

The ASEAN awards are designed to identify ASEAN’s finest performers from financial services companies and institutional investors to service providers, whose influence and excellence expands beyond borders.
