Nuveen, Vanguard, T. Rowe, and Fidelity Dominate in the Big Apple

News summary by MFWire's editors

Last night Fidelity, Morgan Stanley Investment Management, Nuveen, Pimco, T. Rowe Price, and Vanguard all won big at an industry awards show in New York City.

Bob Jenkins, global head of research at Thomson Reuters Wealth Management and Lipper, emceed the 2018 Lipper Fund Awards USA dinner at the Mandarin Oriental in midtown Manhattan, and 104 mutual fund shops' funds were recognized. The six shops mentioned above won 12 or more awards each, and many other fund firms won multiple awards, too.

InvestmentNews partnered with Thomson Reuters on the event. Mark Bruno, associate publisher of InvestmentNews, spoke at the event.

For the third year in a row, the High Water Women charity was featured at the dinner. Janice Abert, a retired asset management industry recruiter, rallied attending fundsters to contribute to the charity's 2018 backpack drive. HWW raised more than $20,000 at the awards dinner last night, and their goal is raise a total of $400,000 by the end of June to supply 20,000 children with backpacks full of school supplies.

Mike Naughton, managing director of the America's for Thomson Reuters' financial and risk practice, also spoke briefly, noting that it's been 15 years since the first Lipper Fund Awards celebration and 45 years since Michael Lipper founded his eponymous data shop (which is now part of Thomson Reuters).

The event also featured a "fireside chat" (sans fireside) between Michael Kushma, chief investment officer of global fixed income at Morgan Stanley, and Lauren Young, money editor at Reuters.

The Thomson Reuters team also brought back the "walk-up music contest," with award presentations accompanied by songs and each table racing to tweet the correct artists. Fundsters at the winning table, number 14, each took home $100 Amazon gift cards.
