Institutional Asset Management Awards 2018

March 20 2018

InsuranceAsia News is pleased to announce the award winners in our inaugural Institutional Asset Management Awards.

The aim of the InsuranceAsia News awards is to recognise exceptional work done by third party asset managers on behalf of their insurance company clients. This has been a key area of focus for asset managers in recent years and we were impressed with the very high quality of entries received across all the award categories.
