Winners List

TheEdge Mon, Apr 19, 2021 12:10am - 2 weeks ago


At the start of 2020, when global markets were not looking too good, the thinking then among many fund managers was that it would be tough to bring in returns that matched those of previous years.

Indeed, when the global markets crashed in March as the Covid-19 pandemic heightened and what started as a health crisis quickly snowballed into an economic one, the worst of times seemed inevitable.

But in a year of multiple black swans, the fund management industry has shown great resilience, thanks to global monetary easing which brought about a big turnaround in equity markets. More importantly, a major factor was  the quick thinking and decisive measures by fund managers to manage the risks and ride the volatilty.

So, what was expected to be a washout year turned out to be an extraordinary one for our fund managers. For the Refinitiv Lipper Fund Awards 2021 in collaboration with The Edge, most of the winning funds outperformed, with Public Mutual standing out again as the biggest winner.

What of this year? There is certainly optimism that 2021 will be a year of recovery, but be that as it may, challenges remain as we are not quite out of the woods yet.

To all the winners, we say, “Congratulations”. ­— By Anna Taing
