NEW YORK, April 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Schroders is pleased to have won the Advisory Solutions Emerging Manager of the Year Award at the 2015 Money Management Institute (MMI) Industry Leadership Awards, which were announced on April 22nd at the MMI Annual Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Schroders was selected for the award by MMI members as an emerging investment manager that has made a meaningful contribution to innovation within the advisory solutions industry and exemplified overall excellence, achievement and growth. In 2014, Schroders successfully grew its US mutual fund family by over 125 percent over the past three years to $3.5 billion in assets under management, $2.6 billion of which is on advisory platforms.1 This growth has been predominantly driven by net new flows, with almost 75 percent coming from organic new business.
Carter Sims, Head of US Intermediary Distribution, said:
"We are very excited to have been recognized by the MMI for our progress and success in the advisory space in 2014. We have worked hard this year to prioritize developing the right solutions that can target specific areas relevant to the US advisory community. Recently we have focused on developing advisory solutions that look to serve three investor outcomes; income, wealth preservation and after-tax total return. In the current challenging and volatile market environment, Schroders has been putting significant focus on developing a targeted, solutions-based approach to meeting clients' needs, and this award represents a strong client endorsement for this strategy."
Nominations for the 2015 Industry Leadership Awards were submitted by MMI members, with finalists selected by a committee representing all segments of the MMI membership and the winners determined by a vote of MMI member firms.
