SimCorp StrategyLab Calls for Entries for the Annual Excellence Awards 2014

SimCorp StrategyLab, a private research institution, headed by Ingo Walter, professor at the Stern School of Business, New York University, has announced the call for entries for the 2014 SimCorp StrategyLab Excellence Awards. The SimCorp StrategyLab Excellence Awards recognize innovation and outstanding performance across the global investment management industry.

Ongoing challenges in the investment management industry have increased focus on risk management, cost control, and growth opportunities. In 2009, as a direct response, SimCorp StrategyLab established three awards that recognize outstanding and innovative industry leaders in their ability to respectively mitigate risk, reduce cost, and enable growth. For the sixth year in a row, SimCorp StrategyLab acknowledges global investment management companies that have demonstrated their excellence in meeting these individual challenges.

An international panel consisting of renowned experts and thought leaders in finance, economics, and applied IT will evaluate the submissions. Winners will be announced on September 18, 2014, at a ceremony in Paris, where they will be recognized in front of more than 400 of their global industry peers.

Previous award recipients include outstanding investment management firms such as: Challenger Limited, Dealis Fund Operations, MEAG, Nordea Savings and Asset Management, as well as Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management.

Submission deadline is August 29, 2014. Further information about the awards can be found at
