Investment Week's Investment Company of the Year Awards aim to recognise and reward excellence in close-ended fund management. These awards highlight investment companies that produce consistent performance and where there is, in the judges' opinion, a high likelihood that the investors will not be disappointed in the future. The 2018 awards will be held on Wednesday 21st November at The Sheraton Park Lane Hotel, London. The judging panel is made up of some of the UK's leading researchers and investors in investment trusts and closed-ended companies, as well as several senior board members with many years' experience in the industry. The judges identified the most consistent performers and Investment Week reward the top managers across a range of sectors.
