Guardian Acuity Asset Management (GAAM) continued on winning ways when its Guardian Acuity Equity Fund took home the Gold Award for Best Unit Trust Fund for the second consecutive year at the CFA Sri Lanka Capital Market Awards held in Colombo last week.

The award is presented to the company applying continuous efforts to ensure best practices, plus, surpassing benchmarks despite the prevalent challenging investment environment. GAAM said it is privileged to come out on top in the sector for consecutive years, amply demonstrating its commitment to excellence in fund management.

The Guardian Acuity Equity Fund previously won Gold for the Best Unit Trust Fund at the CFA Sri Lanka Capital Market Awards in 2018, whilst the Guardian Acuity Money Market Fund won Silver that same year.

This follows similar success during the programme’s 2017 and 2016 editions, underscoring the Group’s position as a consistent top performer in the Sri Lankan capital market.

For consideration, CFA Sri Lanka and the panel of judges study companies that practice better compliance, risk management and transparency in asset management, whilst also ensuring best returns and giving priority to safeguarding the interests of unit trust holders.

“The Gold Award for the second-year running affirms the Guardian Acuity’s continuous commitment and investment in best-in-class service and exceeding expectations on governance principles. Whilst recognizing the efforts of regulators and the industry to create an enabling environment for the local capital market to thrive, our success is also largely due to the valued efforts of Guardian Acuity Asset Management team and its investors,” avers GAAM Director, Sumith Perera.

A joint venture between Ceylon Guardian Investment Trust PLC (a subsidiary of local conglomerate Carson Cumberbatch PLC) and Acuity Partners (a collaboration between Hatton National Bank and DFCC Bank), Guardian Acuity Asset Management offers two Unit Trust Funds.
