Since 2004 the annual Funds Europe Awards has brought together institutional investors, fund managers, administrators, custodians, consultants and service providers to celebrate excellence and innovation in the cross-border funds industry.

The Funds Europe Awards categories include plaudits for fund management, custody, administration, technology and innovation. The awards highlight the performance of asset managers and service providers across different sectors, asset classes and investment strategies, recognises outstanding achievement and showcases those that have excelled within their field.

One of the key features of the Funds Europe Awards is its focus on innovation. The market has undergone significant change and development over recent years, with the industry facing various challenges, including increasing regulatory scrutiny, changing investor preferences and technological disruption. The awards recognise those firms that have adapted to these changes whilst finding innovative ways to address the industry's challenges.

We are proud that our winners are decided by a panel of independent judges, made up of experts and veterans from across the industry, chosen for their ability to give an unbiased and credible evaluation of entries based on their achievements, innovation and client service.

As a prestigious and highly anticipated event in the industry calendar - held at the iconic Tower of London - the awards are a valuable opportunity for industry professionals to come together, network with their peers and celebrate their successes.

We look forward to welcoming winners, guests and judges once again in November this year.

Award submissions close on Tuesday, August 1 2023, with shortlists announced in September.
