DWS Crowned Insurance Fund House of the Year – Hong Kong

DWS is pleased to announce that it has been recognized as the Insurance Fund House of the Year – Hong Kong at the 2021 Institutional Asset Management Awards by InsuranceAsia News. This is the second time in three years DWS has won a fund house award from the publication.

Asia Pacific is a key growth area for the firm, positioning it as a major insurance investment strategy adviser. The amount DWS manages for Asian insurers has doubled in the last three years and the firm now counts a number of leading insurance companies in the region as strategic partners and clients.

The awards recognize exceptional achievements of third-party asset managers appointed by insurance companies in Asia Pacific on different aspects including client wins, fund performance and product development across asset classes or in different facets of asset management.

Ellen Yang, Head of Insurance Coverage, Asia Pacific, said,

"A key element to DWS's success will be the ability to utilize strong insurance advisory capabilities to identify and then provide bespoke portfolio solutions to insurers as they navigate changing solvency regimes and global accounting standards. Insurance is highly specialized and bespoke so it is important to have insurance-knowledgeable resources that enable us to maintain a strong presence in developed markets and capitalise on growth opportunities in emerging markets."

Holger Naumann, Regional Head of Asia Pacific, added,

"We are honored to receive this recognition which underscores DWS's strategic focus in the region on being the trusted partner of our insurance clients, providing value-added solutions and services based on our strong experience in insurance asset management."
