The shortlist for the 2011 International Fund & Product Awards has now been unveiled.
This year’s awards represent the cream of the international investment sector and presented a real challenge for the judges.
“In many cases the categories were so closely contested that the panel found it difficult to get to the shortlist stage, which is going to make the final choice extremely tough,” reports Deborah Benn, chair of the judging panel.
This year saw the introduction of a new category, Best QROPS Provider, in recognition of this new and growing offshore sector related to pensions provision.
“We are pleased with the response we had to the inclusion of this new category. It provided a welcome opportunity for the judges to lift the bonnet and compare the different products currently on offer,” explained Benn.
The final results will be announced on June 16 2011. The full shortlist is available here.
