Thank you to everyone who watched the online ceremony and congratulations to the winners. You can watch the ceremony again here: 

Now in their 22nd year, Investment Week’s Investment Company of the Year Awards have a proud history of rewarding excellence in closed-ended fund management.

The awards highlight outstanding managers in this important part of the market, who have delivered consistently strong performance for investors across a variety of sectors and the judges believe can continue to perform well in the future.

The shortlists for the awards are constructed using scores provided by the AIC, using Morningstar data.

Winners are then chosen by our judging panel after heated debate during our judging sessions, where qualitative factors will also be considered.

The judging panel for the awards includes some of the UK’s leading researchers and investors in investment companies, as well as several senior board members with many years’ experience in the industry.

New categories for the Investment Company of the Year Awards in 2020 include the Rising Star of the Year Award and the Jackie Beard Award for Outstanding Contribution to the Industry.
