Posted: 04-Nov-2020 |
The 2020 INFINZ Awards were celebrated on Tuesday 20 October 2020 at a gala black-tie dinner at Shed 10, Queens Wharf, Auckland City. Over 620 guests enjoyed an evening to celebrate excellence in the financial and capital markets eco-system in New Zealand.
The Awards are facilitated by the Institute of Finance Professionals in New Zealand Inc (INFINZ), a professional body with more than 1,800 individual members, including treasury professionals, investment analysts, fund managers, bankers, lawyers and students in New Zealand.“The INFINZ Awards are directed at raising standards in the industry and thereby enhancing the capacity for NZ businesses to raise debt and equity and grow the economy,” says Jim McElwain, Executive Director of INFINZ.
There were 15 awards delivered on the night, with many of the categories determined by judging nominations from the industry, with 36 experienced professionals having acted as judges, contributing their time and energy to determine the awards in the areas in which they have special expertise.
In addition, some awards are determined through voting. Eleven leading fund managers are polled to determine the broking-related awards, including that of the Research Analyst of the Year. These institutions and the research analysts from four sharebroking firms are polled for the Market Leaders Best Investor Relations Award.
