Lonsec and Superratings Fund of the Year award nominations announced

From

Lonsec and SuperRatings are pleased to announce the nominations for this year’s Lonsec and SuperRatings Fund of the Year Awards. With 18 categories, the awards emphasise Lonsec and SuperRatings’ commitment to recognising the best providers across the managed fund and superannuation sectors.

Lonsec CEO, Mike Wright, comments, ‘As the pandemic has posed ongoing challenges across investment markets and operating environments, it is important that we recognise the contributions of strong funds that are helping their clients and members navigate this uncertainty.’

For the first time, Lonsec will present a full suite of nine managed fund awards, including an overall Lonsec Manager of the Year. Lorraine Robinson, Executive Director of Lonsec Research explains, ‘In previous years, the SuperRatings Awards have been a much-anticipated event and we decided it’s time that Lonsec Research further recognised the outstanding contributors to the managed fund market.’

The nominations for the Lonsec Manager of the Year are:

  • First Sentier Investors
  • Franklin Templeton
  • Pendal Group

This year’s awards will be the nineteenth for SuperRatings, recognising the best superannuation funds. Kirby Rappell, Executive Director of SuperRatings comments, ‘It is an honour to continue to recognise the best in the superannuation sector and award those funds who, in the last year, have helped their members to navigate a very difficult time. While this year’s event will be held virtually, the awards continue to be very real.’

An overall SuperRatings Fund of the Year winner will also be announced on the day. The full list of nominees for all categories is available at the bottom of this release.

The awards will be held at 3.00pm on Thursday, 28 October in a 1.5-hour online session to be enjoyed from the comfort of your home or office. As part of the awards program, Lonsec and SuperRatings will host a panel session, On the Road to Net Zero by 2050, to discuss the strategic considerations associated with the rising adoption of net zero by 2050 by companies and governments and what this means for investment portfolios.
