Home About Members Winners Methodology Contact Us

Each year the FTAdviser Investment 100 Club reveal the most outstanding members in each category

A winner is selected in each of our 20 categories by a panel of experts, based on the results of an extensive product research process.

One winner is chosen from amongst the 5 members of each category – leaving us with 20 elite funds and asset managers covering all of the key areas of the retail fund landscape.

You can see the members of the 2019 FTAdviser Investment 100 club below – the winners in each category will be announced in October.
