Investment Week's Investment Company of the Year Awards aim to recognise and reward excellence in close-ended fund management. These awards highlight investment companies that produce consistent performance and where there is, in the judges' opinion, a high likelihood that the investors will not be disappointed in the future.
The Gold Standard Awards are one of the toughest financial services Awards to achieve, which also makes them highly respected. Now in their tenth year, the Awards are aimed at financial services companies and take into account financial strength and assess attributes such as capability to conduct business, fair value, as well as service standards clients can expect.
Investors have started boosting their exposure to the country as new leadership and more aggressive measures by the Bank of Japan to kick-start growth have excited markets.
Our delegates will have the chance to hear from a number of fund managers on whether these measures can help solve some of Asia's long-standing problems. They will also be discussing where they are finding opportunities on a stock and sector basis for the months ahead.
