Dated 15-03-2023


Kuala Lumpur, 15 March 2023 - Hong Leong Asset Management Bhd (“Hong Leong AM”) bagged 15 individual fund awards for the 2nd consecutive year, exemplifying Hong Leong AM’s commitment to delivering persistent, risk-adjusted returns for investors.
Four of Hong Leong AM's EPF-Members Investment Scheme (“MIS”) approved funds have maintained their winning streaks in various categories of the Refinitiv Lipper Fund Award 2023, two of which are Islamic funds.
Hoo See Kheng, Executive Director/Chief Executive Officer of Hong Leong AM said, “We are honoured to be recognised again by the Refinitiv Lipper Fund Awards. The awards serve as  validation and testimony to the reliability of our investment philosophy and strategies which are meticulously executed by our professional award-winning investment team.”
“Hong Leong AM continuously refines and adopts appropriate investment strategies to help us navigate through challenging market conditions. Hence, despite the prolonged bear market and harsh macro environment in 2022, our time-tested, bottom-up stock-picking strategy remains consistent in generating long-term, sustainable fund outperformance, especially in the local market,” added Hoo.
“The 2023 Refinitiv Lipper Fund Awards recognise those award winning managers who navigated their shareholders through the impacts of a global pandemic and then the perfect storm of economic shocks leading to generational inflation pressure and global central bank interventions.
Prospects for potential recessionary forces taking hold and subdued returns across most major asset classes in 2023, highlights the need for adept stewardship of one’s investments. Fund managers will need to guide their investors through these challenging times and position them favorably for their eventual recovery.
We applaud the 2023 Refinitiv Lipper Fund Award winners such as Hong Leong AM for delivering outperformance and the accompanying comfort of consistency to investors’ portfolios through a cross-current of global economic disruptions.” Robert Jenkins, Head of Research, Lipper, Refinitiv.
