Morningstar Fund Manager of the Year 2007 – Tyndall Investment Management
The Morningstar Fund Manager of the Year 2007 is Tyndall Investment Management. Tyndall has combined a great year in 2007, excellent longer-term risk-adjusted performance, and high-quality people and processes to take out the top award. As well as winning the award for International Equities, special mention should go to the New Zealand equities team, especially in its management of smaller companies, which had a very good year when others faltered. Long the quiet achiever of the New Zealand funds management industry, we fully expect Tyndall to maintain impressive outcomes for investors in its funds.

Morningstar Domestic Equities Fund Manager of the Year 2007 – Brook Asset Management
The Morningstar Domestic Equities Fund Manager of the Year 2007 is Brook Asset Management. Brook has a superb track record in New Zealand shares investing, the envy of its competitors and a credit to the shop's resources and the talented leadership of Simon Botherway and Paul Glass. Brook has continued to go from strength to strength in the generation of outstanding performance for its share fund investors, and 2007 was another great year.

Morningstar Fixed Interest Fund Manager of the Year 2007 – ASB Group Investments
The Morningstar Fixed Interest Fund Manager of the Year 2007 is ASB Group Investments. ASB has multiple approaches to fixed interest investing, all of which had standout years in 2007 and continue to produce top-notch results. The passively-managed ASB World Fixed Interest Fund was one of the topperforming global fixed interest strategies last year, demonstrating the value of a low-cost index style in the asset class. And the active management by Colonial First State under the Sovereign banner in turbulent credit market conditions illustrates the importance of a prudently-managed, well-diversified approach.

Morningstar International Equities Fund Manager of the Year 2007 – Tyndall Investment Management
The Morningstar International Equities Fund Manager of the Year 2007 is Capital International, distributed in New Zealand through Tyndall Investment Management. Capital's reputation for forging its own path in global shares investing and paying little adherence to market speculation continues to pay off for local investors. The multi-portfolio manager approach and Capital's seasoned and stable investment team has led to one of the best long-term performance records in the market, making Tyndall a worthy winner of the award for international equities for 2007.

Morningstar Multi-Sector Fund Manager of the Year 2007 – Tower Managed Funds
The Morningstar Multi-Sector Fund Manager of the Year 2007 is Tower Managed Funds. A finalist in this category last year, Tower took out the honours for 2007 largely on the back of shrewd tactical asset allocation decision-making and consistent performance over the middle years of this decade. Overweights to global bonds and New Zealand property in 2007 also helped Tower deliver a first-rate achievement for investors in its multi-sector funds in challenging market conditions.

Morningstar Property Fund Manager of the Year 2007 – AMP Capital Investors
The Morningstar Property Fund Manager of the Year 2007 is AMP Capital Investors. AMP has established itself as one of New Zealand's pre-eminent property fund managers, the calibre of its people and depth of resources enabling the firm's property funds to best the majority of peers with below-average volatility. The listed exposure enabled AMP to achieve double-digit growth earlier in the decade, while the unlisted exposures have more recently helped the firm hold up returns to investors in its property funds.
