2012 funds europe awards
EDHEC-Risk Institute was the only organisation to receive a special commendation for the excellence of its work at the event. SAM, an investment boutique focused on sustainability investing, was the inaugural winner of the category. Other companies short-listed for the award were Investit and Lipper.
The prestigious Funds Europe Awards, now in their eighth year, set out to recognise personal and company achievements and contributions within the European funds community and to credit publicly those who have advanced the cross-border agenda in the funds industry. A substantial number of entries were received in each of the 21 categories. The panel of judges, composed of leading professionals with a wealth of funds industry experience, scored entries for excellence, demonstrated clearly and concisely, in the key areas of performance, growth, innovation, development, client service, and commitment to Europe and to the industry.
The European Thought Leadership category, part of the Individual and Company Awards, is a new category aimed at companies or individuals who have published ground-breaking research or opinion that judges consider most relevant and vital to solving challenges faced by asset managers, ranging from operational risk management to diversification, and from provider selection to more effective performance measurement.
