Amati Fund Managers win Investment Week’s Fund Manager of the Year Award 2017 for TB Amati UK Smaller Companies Fund
Dr Paul Jourdan, Douglas Lawson & David Stevenson are delighted to have won the prestigious Fund Manager of the Year award 2017 from Investment Week presented on 6 July 2017 at the Royal Albert Hall in London.
The aim of the Investment Week Fund Manager of the Year Awards is to highlight funds that produce consistent performance and where there is, in the judges' opinion, a high chance that the manager will not disappoint in the future.
A look at the previous winners section shows many of the managers who won in the past are still considered to be at the top of their peer groups today. While the last few years have seen a high level of manager turnover, the awards are only for funds where the manager has been in place for three years or more. Just as the judges are looking for consistency of return, they believe one of the best ways for a fund to achieve this is via the consistency of a fund manager's tenure. The top managers tend to be those who stick with their portfolios for the long-term.
Douglas Lawson commented "The team at Amati is thrilled to have been awarded Investment Week's UK Smaller Company Fund Manager of the Year award for its TB Amati UK Smaller Companies Fund. Investment Week is a well-respected industry commentator and judged the finalists on a rigorous set of quantitative and qualitative factors. We are delighted with this vote of confidence in our investment philosophy and process."
