To qualify, funds must have a three-year track record to 28 February 2022 as a sustainable fund and be available in the UK to retail/wholesale investors. They must also be a minimum of £10m in size as at 28 February 2022.

A fund may only be entered for a maximum of two categories for these awards, providing they meet the category criteria. Please enter the category that best suits your fund or we may ask you to change categories.

For the new launch categories, funds must have been launched in the year to 28 February 2022 to qualify.

Papers must have been published in the year to 28 February 2022.

The entries are judged by a panel of sustainable investment experts from across the industry who will decide the shortlists and final winners.

For the fund categories, they will consider factors including: strong performance record; strength of the team; meeting the fund’s sustainable objectives; excellence in sustainable investing within the investment process; strong engagement record; effective client communication; wider fund impact; and key developments on the strategy in the past year.

For the other categories, entrants will have to provide examples of innovation, original thinking, inspiring leadership or wider industry impact in this area. Please see entry forms for category questions.


Terms and Conditions The judges' decision is final. The judges have the right to determine the standards of an award and to withhold an award in any category if, in their view, the entries are not of sufficient merit.
