Methodology
In 2019, about 860 top-rated individuals including analysts, economists and strategists, salespeople and traders were invited by the Asset Benchmark Research to nominate the most Astute investors, based on their knowledge of the credits and markets, trading skill and acumen in making investment decisions. As such the ranking also includes investors who are not included in absolute return or performance assessments. The nominations collected are subject to the rating of the individual casting the vote. The latter is determined according to the annual survey of investors.
The awardees of most Astute Investors in Asian G3 Bonds 2019 will be honoured at a gala dinner.
