Ensuring excellence is rewarded

The judging process is designed to be rigorous and thorough to ensure all entries receive full consideration and that excellence in each of the categories is truly rewarded.

Our broad and independent panel of more than 20 industry names including leading allocators, ETF strategists, independent directors and consultants conduct a rigorous assessment of each category to ensure that only the most truly deserving firms are recognized.

Groups of judges are allocated categories, which are aligned to their specific market knowledge and avoid conflict of interest. Each group of judges have no access to the submissions or results of categories they are not involved in judging.
