2022 Winners

Year-on-year, the With Intelligence HFM Asian Services Awards recognize and reward hedge fund service providers who have demonstrated exceptional client service, innovative product development, and strong and sustainable business growth over the past 12 months.

The rigorous judging process, based on the views of a panel of leading hedge fund COOs, CFOs, CCOs, GCs, and CTOs, ensures that the Awards recognize those driving up service standards across the sector and stand out from the crowd as the ones the big providers really want to win.

After having to take place virtually in 2020 and 2021, the 2022 spectacular black-tie dinner and ceremony took place on 30 November at the Shangri-La Singapore.
