Kearney Group is pleased to announce the firm has been named finalist for the 2022 IMAP Managed Account Awards. Kearney Group’s Ethos Portfolios have been selected for the inaugural award for best ESG Portfolio. Other finalists in the ESG category include Lonsec, Morgan Stanley Wealth Management, Russell Investments, and DNR Capital.

The IMAP Managed Account Awards recognise excellent practice, by both advice firms and investment managers.

The Institute of Managed Account Professions (IMAP) says the Awards are “important for both clients and those working in the industry as the best service providers have proven processes, are well resourced, and have a clear investment philosophy with solid track records.”

 

The ethos behind Ethos Portfolios.

“At Kearney Group, we’ve long believed that good investment is responsible investment,” says CEO, Paul Kearney. “Short-term gains that come at the expense of our community and planet, aren’t really ‘good returns’.”

He explains that Ethos Managed Portfolios are designed to explicitly consider environmental, social and governance (‘ESG’) factors in fund manager selection and investment decision-making processes.

Paul stressed that “ESG factors are considered, not only because they’re ‘nice to have’ but because they’re strong indicators of high performance and long term value.” This is a view supported by research from the RIAA which confirms that “responsible investment funds outperform mainstream funds over most time frames and asset classes.”

 

Quality finalists, expert panel.

“IMAP have been industry and thought leaders in the Managed Accounts space for many years,” says Kearney Group COO, Matt Englund.

The IMAP Managed Account Awards are judged by an expert panel of investment professionals.

The panelists boast “experience on investment committees, in running managed account and fund portfolios, and through their hands on involvement in the development of managed account portfolios,” says IMAP.

“To be considered by such an eminent panel for the inaugural ESG award is a credit to the team here at Kearney Group and our partners at Zenith,” Matt concludes.

 

Winners announced in August.

Award winners will be announced at the annual IMAP Awards Ceremony on August 24 in Sydney, Australia.
