Accolades for NZ Equities and Fixed Income Teams
April 2, 2009
From Mark Butcher: The outstanding capabilities of the New Zealand Equities (Australasian High Growth) and New Zealand Fixed Income teams recently have been acknowledged by the industry.
Last month, the Australasian High Growth Equities team, led by Andrew Bascand, received the Morningstar NZ Domestic Equities Fund Manager of the Year Award for 2008. The team has also been named a finalist for the Institute of Finance Professionals NZ (INFINZ) Equity Fund Manager of the Year Award.
The NZ Fixed Income team, led by Mark Brown, has been named a finalist for the INFINZ New Zealand Fixed Income Manager of the Year Award. There are only two categories of INFINZ awards, and we are a finalist in both categories. The winners will be announced at the end of April.
The industry recognition is welcome as both our equities and fixed-income teams are ranked in the top two in the Manager performance surveys, and have delivered strong alpha outcomes to clients in their respective services over the past three years.
Congratulations to both teams.
