HONG KONG, July 26, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- FountainCap Research & Investment (Hong Kong) Co., Ltd. ("FountainCap") has won its fourth Asset Management Company of the Year – China Offshore Equity Highly Commended award from The Asset magazine's Triple A Sustainable Investing Awards. While every year has its share of challenges, 2020 was truly extraordinary: the pandemic, economic recessions, Brexit, social unrest, contentious election, and a slew of other calamities. Despite all the challenges, FountainCap successfully navigated through 2020 generating one of the best performances since the company's inception and saw its AUM grow to US$1.5 billion by end of 2020.
The Asset awards are meticulously reviewed by a panel of professional investors and analysts based on a series of qualitative and quantitative factors such as investment returns, assets under management, investment strategies, and market insights. This year, the panel placed a particular emphasis on the following areas when evaluating institutions: the ability to adapt and react to a volatile market; technological integration for the business; investment acumen in helping investors navigate through the pandemic; investor communication; and the ability to grow the business under a new normal.
In addition to winning The Asset award, FountainCap was also appointed as one of two China equity managers in 2020 to jointly manage the China equity portfolio for the Border to Coast Pensions Partnership, one of the largest public sector pension pools in the UK with over £49 billion in AUM. The milestone reflects FountainCap's years of hard work and commitment to building a premium China-focused asset management company.
