Investment Week hosted our 14th annual Investment Company of the Year Awards at a glittering ceremony in London last night.

With RDR only a matter of weeks away, the investment company sector finds itself at the dawn of a new era.

Award winners revealed

It is therefore encouraging that a growing number of boards and management groups have done a huge amount of work to improve the transparency of communication with existing shareholders and also broaden appeal to newer investors. Many of these companies were rewarded for their efforts at last night’s awards. 

External members of the judging panel were Simon Moore at Bestinvest, Simon Elliott at Winterflood, Midas’ Nick Greenwood, independent consultant James Carthew, Ben Yearsley and Stephen Peters from Charles Stanley and a new panellist this year, Peter Bristowe from Edison Research. 

Performance data for the awards was provided by the AIC, Morningstar and FE Trustnet.

Congratulations to all our winners and finalists.
