2018 Professional Planner | Zenith Fund Awards

24 Jul 2018

Zenith Investment Partners and Professional Planner will join forces to host the seventh annual Fund Awards in Sydney on Friday 5 October.

The Fund Awards recognise the top talent in the funds management industry and rely on Zenith’s independent insights and leadership in assessing investment capabilities. Awards are assigned across 17 investment categories.

On 23 July Professional Planner announced the first group of finalists, followed by the second group on 24 July. Overall, there are 51 fund manager finalists.

In 2017 Antipodes Partners created history by winning Fund Manager of the Year for the first time with Pinnacle Investment Management taking out Distributor of the Year.

With 3,800 funds under its research radar, Zenith aims to be the partner of choice for Australian advice firms seeking research, consulting and portfolio solutions (both managed accounts and paper model portfolios).

Zenith wishes to congratulate all finalists and looks forward to hosting Australia’s leading investment talent at the 2018 Fund Awards.
