Funds shortlisted for the InvestmentEurope 2012 Awards

After what has been one of the most difficult investing years on record, Europe’s asset management industry will see which funds and managers really do deliver on their promises, with the publication of the InvestmentEurope 2012 Awards shortlist.

The candidates are the result of a rigorous quantitative and then qualitative process, where data from three leading providers – Lipper, Morningstar and Financial Express, has been cross-checked against a list of published criteria to produce a shortlist of finalists in each of 17 award categories.

The awards list, finalists and the methodology are available here:

The shortlists of eight funds for each Award will be reviewed by a panel of 10 distinguished industry experts from across Europe, as well as Incisive Media Editorial Director Lawrence Gosling, InvestmentEurope Editor Caroline Allen, and deputy Editor James Norris.

Through an e-voting system, contenders are ranked independently and securely by the industry judges, who are also free to provide comment on the style and management of the funds. The voting facility remains open until September 4th. The winners will be announced at the Awards dinner during InvestmentEurope’s pan European Fund Selector Summit at the Beau Rivage Palace in Lausanne, from October 9-11th.
