At Envestnet, we are committed to providing advisors on our platform with access to a growing ecosystem of solutions and strategies for helping clients optimize their investment outcomes. We understand investment selection can be challenging, and advisors and investors alike need guidance on performing robust due diligence on asset managers.

To that end, we sponsor the annual Asset Manager of the Year Award with Investment Advisor magazine, the print publication of Now in their 18th year, these awards recognize high-conviction portfolio managers that go above and beyond in setting a positive example for others in the industry to emulate—from outperforming the markets to serving investors, and everything in between.

Just as advisors’ due diligence on prospective investment products and strategies should be robust and expansive, so too is the process for choosing award nominees. Envestnet | PMC developed a systematic, proprietary, and multi-factor methodology for selecting finalists from among thousands of managers, taking many qualitative and quantitative criteria into consideration. These criteria include investment process and style, composite, customer service, tax efficiency, performance, and firm profile. Eligible managers must be broadly available on the Envestnet platform and open to new investors—and must have at least three years of experience, and $200 million in assets under management.

The Asset Manager of the Year Award winners will be announced during the 2022 Envestnet Advisor Summit in Charlotte. All award recipients will be featured on, and in print in an upcoming issue of Investment Advisor magazine.
