The fund award winners were selected through both quantitative and qualitative methods. FE fundinfo used its Crown Rating methodology to assess funds based on alpha, volatility and consistency of performance and create a shortlist for 14 asset classes.
The shortlist was given to an independent panel of professionals from Asia’s fund selector community in Hong Kong. The judges selected the funds they each thought would outperform in the next 12 months. Their aggregated choices determined the Platinum and Gold winners.
We thank the fund selector judges for their support and congratulations to all the winners.
