Zenith names fund awards winners

Zenith Investment Partners has announced the winners of its annual Fund Awards, recognising excellence in funds management across 22 categories.

Each finalist was a leader in their respective field and had displayed investment excellence across both qualitative and quantitative criteria over the last 12 months, Zenith said.

Pendal, which was announced as 2020’s Fund Manager of the Year and also won in the Australian Fixed Interest category and earned nominations in the Multi Asset Diversified and Responsible Investments categories, was praised by Zenith for its high quality of product suite, consistency of ratings over time and Zenith expressed high regard for Pendal’s investment team as key drivers for this award.

“Despite the obvious challenges of operating within markets over the last 8-9 months, we’ve seen many managers continue to adapt and thrive to deliver better outcomes to their investors, which is a credit to the industry,” David Wright, Zenith’s chief executive, said.
