Insurance Asset Risk is pleased to announce the winners of its 2020 Awards
There was no clear overall winner to this year's Insurance Asset Risk awards with three firms taking two awards each. Morgan Stanley Investment Management retained its crown as equity manager of the year while also bagging the fixed income manager of the year award. DWS won passive manager of the year, a new category, as well as real assets manager of the year. Judges voted Aviva Investors as both data science provider of the year (new category) and investment team of the year.
Tim Ryan, of Generali, took the judges' award for chief investment officer of the year.
This is Insurance Asset Risk Awards' third edition. Building on the success of previous years, three new categories were added, an increased number of entries was received, matched with an increase in quality – which made the judges work even harder.
The whole of Insurance Asset Risk's team would like to thank the industry for its support, and the judges for their time and expertise.
We will be hosting a cocktail reception on 12 March at the Tower of London (London, UK) to celebrate the awards. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org should you wish to purchase tickets to attend.
