IMAP Managed Accounts Awards finalists announced

The Institute of Managed Account Professionals (IMAP), partnered with research house FE and sponsored by Netwealth, has announced the finalists of the 2018 IMAP Managed Account Awards, which cover both single sector asset classes and multi asset class programs.

Chair of IMAP and adjudicator of the awards, Toby Potter, said managed accounts were becoming a significant part of the advice profession, with many managers now offering portfolios, and the awards were a recognition of excellent practice among advice firms.

“The managed account programs they offer are operated largely out of sight and the best are well resourced, carefully thought through, have a clear investment philosophy with decent track records and deserve to be recognised,” he said.
