ESG Clarity presents the winners of the Asia edition of our ESG Clarity Fund Awards 2022

ESG Clarity is delighted to unveil the winners of the Fund Awards for the first ever ESG Clarity Awards.

ESG Clarity worked with data partner MSCI to come up with a shortlist of the top funds in each category. A consistent methodology was applied to select an initial pool of funds – both active and passive – onto which our independent judging panel applied a qualitative layer of analysis, based on their own research and review of the data, in order to identify the winners of each category.

We would like to thank MSCI and the fund selector judges for their support and a huge congratulations to all the winners.
