Equitix awarded Partners Award by Korean Union

Equitix has been awarded the Partners Award for Alternative Investments 2019 by the Korean Teachers’ Credit Union (KTCU) in Seoul. This award is given to investment managers whom the Union feels have contributed to a significant uplift in the performance of their fund.

Winners are selected on quantitative evaluations such as profit, as well as on the results of a satisfaction rating survey by their employees. Equitix was the only non-domestic manager to receive the accolade.

Geoff Jackson, Chief Executive Officer, said: “We are delighted to receive this prestigious award from KTCU. We greatly value the trust that our Korean partners have placed in us and continue to strive to deliver the risk-adjusted returns that they seek from a diverse portfolio of core infrastructure assets.”
