Schroders awarded significant infrastructure investment accolade from leading South Korean business publication

Schroders was voted one of the ‘Best Asset Managers by Korean Investors 2020’, winning the ‘Best Communication’ award in the Infrastructure Large Cap category.

The ‘Best Asset Managers by Korean Investors 2020’ awards are carried out by South Korea’s leading economic newspaper The Korea Economic Daily.

The respondents, including the National Pension Service (NPS) and Korea Investment Corp (KIC), were responsible for picking the best GPs across the following asset classes: private equity; private debt; real estate; infrastructure; and hedge funds; in terms of performance, communication and client services.

‘Best Communication’ was awarded to GPs who kept LPs updated on their portfolios and risk in the most effective and transparent manner.

Georg Wunderlin, Schroders’ Global Head of Private Assets, Schroders, commented:

“This award is testament to the quality of Schroders’ infrastructure business and the breakthrough we have had in South Korea recently. It is great to see that, while our fundraising activity in South Korea started only one year ago, Schroders is already a recognised and highly respected infrastructure specialist in the region.

“This is the result of exceptional team work within Schroders’ Private Assets business and the proof of our dedication to delivering excellent client service.”

Susan Soh, Co-Head of Asia Pacific, Schroders, added:

This award is a fantastic achievement and great recognition for our business in the region. The team has worked extremely hard to get to this prime position in South Korea and we’ll continue to strive to service our infrastructure clients with the highest standards.”

This news follows shortly after Schroders announced that Chantale Pelletier had joined as Global Head of Infrastructure in Private Assets.

Schroders’ Private Assets business, which is a key strategic priority for the firm, includes private equity, infrastructure, microfinance and impact investments, insurance-linked securities and securitised credit and has combined assets under management of £45.3 billion.*
