Good Returns Fund Manager of the Year 2020 winners announced

The results of the Good Returns Fund Manager of the Year awards, can finally be revealed. 

Friday, December 4th 2020, 4:50PM

A big congratulations to the team at ANZ Investments taking out this year’s coveted Fund Manager of the Year Award.

Since the 2016  ANZ Investments have consistently been shortlisted, finalists and winners in several sectors. In a tumultuous year ANZ Investments have again shown strong performance across the sectors, taking away the top award.

The awards are powered by Research IP and FE fundinfo data, and are based on one-year returns and a number of other factors to ensure the winners and funds shortlisted in each category were not “one-hit wonders”.

Research IP managing director Darren Howlin has said that the company “is cognisant that investors may choose a fund because it is award winning and Good Returns wants to acknowledge outstanding performance in the last 12 months, but through Research IP’s rigorous process, we can ensure the best managers are awarded each year."

This year’s awards included the Adviser Choice category for KiwiSaver, purely driven by financial adviser voting, and the introduction of the Responsible Investment category. The Adviser Choice category was taken out by Fisher Funds, and Responsible Investment was taken out by Pathfinder Asset Management.

John Berry, CEO and co-founder of Pathfinder, said, “We are very excited to receive this award. For me it reinforces our approach. We are not just excluding companies we are focused on investing in good companies. Investing in good companies not only provides good returns but it is also good for the planet and the people who live on it. And that is our primary focus.”

Howlin said, “While factors are captured in our qualitative research, it was important to recognise the achievements of New Zealand fund managers, who are at the cutting edge of responsible Investing.”

More than 1,000 votes were cast this year. Advisers chose Milford Asset Management in the fixed interest category; Mint Asset Management in property and infrastructure; Fisher Funds for equities; and Booster in the KiwiSaver category.

Howlin said, “This is a strong endorsement from the users of fund managers in the industry, where we aim to make the awards more inclusive.”

A special mention also to the Fund Manager of the Year finalists. This was a very close year, where each finalist had a strong presence of shortlisted, finalist and sector winners. Fisher Funds, Harbour and Smartshares should be very proud of their achievement across categories. A half a per cent here or there was largely the difference between being shortlisted, finalist and winner in most categories.

In what may be the last year in Boutique Fund Manager of the Year, congratulations to QuayStreet on a very close call for taking out the title this year, and to Castle Point and Mint for their strong client focused outcomes.
