“We’re highlighting the best of the best for their excellence in marketing and communicating with investors, intermediaries and plan participants,” Gina Meagher
, Star Awards program manager tells MFWire
MFEA's Star Awards strives to highlight exceptional marketing and communication efforts within the asset management sector. Nominations fall into 35 categories, in four specific divisions: retail communications, advisor communications, retirement communications and a community investment award.
This year, the trade group is making some changes to the awards. They’re revamping certain categories by streamlining and consolidating them. They’re also adjusting their overall awards, ditching the overall digital winner, and bolstering the other overall category winners. Additionally, this year they’re offering a downloadable guidebook about the categories to help companies as they go through the nomination process, and they’re remodeling their trophies to have a slicker, more modern look.
Founded in 1971, the Mutual Fund Education Alliance (MFEA) is a nationwide trade association, aimed at bolstering relationships between advisors and investors.
Nominations will be accepted until June 1. To nominate someone, click here
