The judging process for the International Investment Fund & Product Awards 2007 has now kicked off, and readers are being given a chance to have their say.
Readers who complete the short survey will be entered into a prize draw to win their choice of a prize to the value of £100.
An expert panel is set to come together to consider entries across 15 categories and International Investment can reveal that the shortlist for the best provider of third-party fund links to international life offices category has been selected, with Artemis, Jupiter, M&G, New Star, Old Mutual and Standard Life Investments making the final cut.
Those being considered for the best offshore fund provider award are Aberdeen International Management Ireland, Axa Rosenberg Management Ireland, Barings, Fidelity Funds (Luxembourg), Investec GS, Mellon Global Investments, MM Asset Management, Pimco Funds - Global Investors Series and T. Rowe Price Global Investment.
In addition, the judging panel has nominated a shortlist of offshore centres consisting of Jersey, Guernsey, Isle of Man, Gibraltar, Dublin and Luxembourg.
This year, two new awards have been established, for private banking and international investment platform providers.
The judging process has also been enhanced and this is the first time the panel has asked for readers' views on which companies they think are worthy winners. The survey will be available via International Investment's website www.intinv.com from March 7.
The winners of the awards will be announced at a black tie dinner to be held on the evening of Wednesday 16 May at the Victoria Park Plaza in London.
The ceremony follows on from International Investment's London Forum, covering the key issues facing advisers conducting offshore business, including investment and tax planning for clients.
