The financial industry is taking notice of the hard work, success, and innovation of SWIB staff. SWIB was recognized with two industry honors – Team of the Year and Partnership of the Year – at the 4th Annual Institutional Investor Allocators’ Choice Awards.
The Allocators' Choice Awards are given annually by Institutional Investor -- a leading international financial publication -- to recognize industry leaders. The awards were created as a way for asset allocators to choose peers deserving recognition for their work in different categories.
For the second time in the last five years, SWIB was honored as Team of the Year. The award recognized SWIB staff for their dedication, diligence, and fortitude during 2020. The agency navigated volatile markets to produce the most value added to the WRS in more than a decade, onboarded a significant number of new talented professionals, and moved forward key projects in an otherwise uncertain and challenging year.
SWIB accepted the Partnership of the Year award on behalf of the Global Peer Financing Association (GPFA). The GPFA is a nonprofit partnership of 20 global investors with nearly $9 trillion in assets launched by SWIB and three other public pension funds that seeks to increase and support peer-to-peer securities financing trading activity.
Finalists were selected based on nominations submitted over the summer and were vetted by Institutional Investor's editorial team.
