BNP Paribas Asset Management Asia Pacific picked up two coveted “Sustainability Awards” in Hong Kong at the recent 14th BENCHMARK Fund of the Year Awards.
The two ‘fiercely-contested’ awards: “Sustainable Impact” and “Sustainable Investment (Overall Leader)” assess asset managers’ overall ESG1 quality and their ability to manage essential medium to long-term risks and opportunities arising from environmental, social, and governance factors.
The Benchmark Fund of the Year Awards is organised by WealthAsia Media, the publisher of Hong Kong’s oldest bi-lingual finance publication, BENCHMARK.
This accolade comes in addition to BNPP AM Asia Pacific recent victory in 5 categories at Best of the Best Awards organized by Asia Asset Management – one of Asia Pacific’s leading publications on investments and pensions. This definitely cements the good work that we have achieved in the ESG space in recent years.
What makes these wins extra special is that BNPP AM is the first company to win the ESG awards: in this new category, we were named “Best Responsible Investor” for Hong Kong (country award) and for the region (Regional Award).
This is also the fifth consecutive year that Shinhan BNP Paribas Asset Management won Best Institutional House in Korea and it is our second consecutive win in the Best Multi-Asset House category.
The annual Asia Asset Management “Best of the Best Awards” programme – already in its 15th year – acknowledges companies who have made an outstanding and innovative contribution to the pensions and fund management industry; whether in asset management, asset servicing or in support of those activities.
The awards ceremony will take place in Hong Kong’s Four Seasons Hotel on Friday, 23 March, 2018.
