Pension Bridge Institutional Asset Management Awards 2020 selection criteria:

The fund categories are open to any funds that have institutional investors, including, but not limited to, SMAs.

The judging will be 2-stage. The first stage will use purely the quantitative elements to derive leader boards from the entries. These leader boards will inform and populate the shortlists for each category, who will go through to the second stage of judging where a panel of independent and impartial judges from Institutional Investors and Consultants will ensure firstly that the data is correct and will use their knowledge and the qualitative elements of the entry process to decide on the winners by category.

The judging panel reviewed 9 managers each for both the Multi-Asset Class Strategy and Active International Equity Strategy.

Pension Bridge provides exclusive events for senior executives within the institutional investment management industry.
