The winners of this year’s awards for asset managers specialising in investment portfolios for insurance companies have been announced by InsuranceAsia News.
The second annual Institutional Asset Management Awards recognises once again the exceptional work done by third-party asset managers on behalf of their insurance company clients across the Asia Pacific region.
The awards are given across asset classes, specialist services and individual countries. They serve to highlight expertise in the many different facets of asset management, including portfolio management, quantitative and data solutions, through to ESG strategies.
Amundi Asset Management is this year’s winner of the marquee award for Institutional Asset Manager of the Year. The firm showed strongly across the board on new client wins, product development and fund performance. The French company has made a strong commitment to building out its Asian asset management business, with a real focus on insurance and pension clients.
