Our sister publication's awards luncheon was held Wednesday at the Renaissance Harbour View Hotel Hong Kong, where the Platinum and Gold winners accepted their respective fund awards.
Pimco, Schroders, Pictet and Fidelity made more than one trip to the stage. Fidelity won four awards, Schroders won three and Pimco won both Platinum and Gold awards in the Global Bond category
The award winners were selected through both quantitative and qualitative methods. FE Advisory used its Crown Rating methodology to assess funds based on alpha, volatility and consistency and create a shortlist for 15 asset classes.
The shortlist was given to an independent panel of professionals from Asia's fund selector community in Hong Kong. Each judge selected the funds they thought would outperform in the next 12 months. Their aggregated choices determined the Platinum and Gold winners.
The Hong Kong shortlist is here.
The Singapore FSA Awards luncheon will be held on 17 January.
We thank the fund selector judges for their support and congratulations to all the winners.
