Milltrust International Group is proud to announce it has been named ‘Best Asset Management Firm serving Family Offices and Private Banks (South East Asia Region)’ and ‘Best Asset Management Firm serving Family Offices and Private Banks (Greater China Region)’ at the prestigious Ninth Annual WealthBriefingAsia Awards 2021.
Commenting on Milltrust’s win, ClearView Financial Media’s CEO, and Publisher of WealthBriefing, Stephen Harris said: “Milltrust has been recognised for innovation ever since they came onto our radar screen in 2012. This is a group that has consistently been rated highly by our judges over the past decade for innovation and sustainability. They have been first winners in this category of “best asset manager serving family offices and private banks” in 2019 and now to be recognised once again, is a huge testament to the focus of Simon Hopkins and his team at Milltrust for not only committing to deliver a program of sustainable investments but also to the excellent performance they have continued to deliver.”
Simon Hopkins, CEO of Milltrust International Group, said: “It’s the 10th year of our existence in Singapore and we are incredibly honoured to have won the award as the leading provider of asset management services to family offices and private banks in South-East Asia and the Greater China regions. Milltrust is one of few firms dedicated to ‘sustainability and impact’ that continuously achieves excellent results for our clients year in, year out. In an incredibly difficult year for many, we have delivered extraordinary returns in our Global Emerging Markets fund, as well as our China, Korea and ASEAN funds, and our Climate Impact Asia Fund, our exciting initiative and joint venture with WWF in Hong Kong”.
He added, we are also very pleased with the embedded value in our long term portfolio of farmland assets, and perhaps most exciting development in 2020 was through our British innovation fund, set up by Milltrust in 2015, through which we have been fortunate to back the AstraZeneca/Oxford vaccine launched in the course of the pandemic by Vaccitech, a spin out of the Jenner Institute at Oxford University. This company has recently listed on NASDAQ and has a valuation in excess of $550 million.”
Stephen Harris, extended his congratulations to all the winners. He said: “The organisations and individuals who triumphed in these awards are all worthy winners, and I would like to extend my heartiest congratulations to the winners and to those who have put so much work into each winning submission.
“These awards were independently and expertly judged solely on the basis of entrants’ submissions and their response to a number of specific questions, which were answered by focusing on the client experience rather than purely quantitative performance metrics. That is a unique, and I believe, compelling feature. These awards recognise the very best operators in Asia wealth management, with ‘independence’, ‘integrity’ and ‘genuine insight’ the watchwords of the judging process – such that the awards truly reflect excellence in Asia wealth management.”
