ING Clarion Real Estate Securities, the real estate securities management group within ING Real Estate, has won the Global Real Estate Manager of the Year Award, a Specialists and Alternative Investment Manager Award presented by Professional Pensions, the leading UK publication for the occupational pensions industry. The Professional Pensions' Specialists and Alternative Investment Manager Awards recognize the leading and most innovative investment managers serving UK pension schemes.
The company claimed the top spot ahead of five rivals. The shortlists were based on data from Mercer Investment Consulting's performance analytics and performance over three years to the end of June 2007. The second round of judging was based on award submissions from the shortlisted firms. The award was presented at a gala lunch held in London recently.
Ritson Ferguson, Chief Investment Officer and Managing Director of ING Clarion Real Estate Securities, said: "Being recognised as 'Global Real Estate Manager of the Year" is indeed an honor. We are proud of this achievement. We are committed to providing first-class client service and to ensuring consistently superior investment performance. The award recognizes the strength and quality of our people."
ING Real Estate was recently named top manager in terms of total assets invested in real estate for the fourth year running by leading US publication Pensions and Investments.
