HONG KONG, March 14, 2022 — WTW (Willis Towers Watson, NASDAQ:WTW), a leading global advisory, broking, and solutions company, has won the Alternatives House of the Year (Hedge Fund) award at Asia Asset Management’s 2022 Best of the Best Awards. The award recognises the success of WTW’s hedge fund portfolio approach, and the custom-built strategies designed for clients, that outperformed the market over the last three years.

Over the last decade, many hedge funds failed to deliver, producing unpredictable returns and expensive fee structures. Many hedge funds did not offer real diversification during periods of market stress, clearly exemplified during the COVID-19 sell off. A key differentiation of WTW’s dynamic approach was to identify and then isolate skillful traders, and differentiated return streams, which can then benefit from market volatility and generate positive returns.

This award demonstrates WTW’s expertise in providing institutional investors with solutions beyond traditional asset classes that can provide attractive returns with low correlation to mainstream markets.”

Paul Colwell | Head of Advisory Portfolio Group, Investments Asia, WTW

Commenting on the awards, Paul Colwell, Head of Advisory Portfolio Group, Investments Asia at WTW, said “It is a great achievement to receive this award from Asia Asset Management. This award demonstrates WTW’s expertise in providing institutional investors with solutions beyond traditional asset classes that can provide attractive returns with low correlation to mainstream markets. Hedge funds are a valuable portfolio building block and the WTW team has successfully developed a suite of hedge fund solutions that can be utilised by Asian asset owners with quick and easy access to implementation strategy that can protect and enhance their total portfolio outcomes and enhance overall resilience.”

Asia Asset Management’s Best of the Best Awards is an annual awards programme that gives recognition to Asia’s pensions and fund management industry for outstanding achievements over the past calendar year. These include investment management, pensions governance, application of technology, securities servicing, innovative products and leadership.
