Allocator Announces winners of the Investor Choice Awards 2017, EMEA & APAC

(London, March 30th 2017) Allocator, the data platform for the investment management industry, has announced the winners of its Investors Choice Awards 2017 for the EMEA & APAC region.

Andurand Capital Management, Majedie Asset Management and Halkin Asset Management won the major awards of the night, being the Fund of the Year, UCITS Fund of the Year and the Emerging Fund of the Year, respectively.

The awards were announced by Karen Tso, anchor of CNBC Squawk Box. Karen kept the managers on their toes with a few surprise questions she had up her sleeve. Over 300 people, including over 150 investors, attended the sold out event, which was held at the Dorchester Hotel in London.

“Our clients invest for the medium to longer term, and use Allocator to help them understand their fund investments and potential fund investments. The awards, which are judged through the Allocator portal, reflect the holistic approach our clients have to their allocations” said David Tawil, co-founder of Allocator.

This year, award finalists are being honoured and the winners announced at two gala dinners in New York and London.

The awards were judged by a distinguished panel of institutional investors in funds and they took into account a set of qualitative criteria covering the investment process, risk management framework and depth of research team, as well as a set of quantitative performance measures including annualized returns, volatility and maximum drawdown.

Allocator is also a proud corporate partner of Action Medical Research, which is a beneficiary of the Investors Choice Awards 2017 Gala Dinner. Since 1952, the charity has saved and transformed children's lives through funding important breakthroughs in medical research.

Congratulations to all the shortlisted fund managers and award winners!
