Philam Asset Management, Inc. (PAMI) continued its successful run of citations by once again being included among The Asset Magazine’s list of top Investment Houses. The Asset Magazine is a prestigious Hong Kong based publication that reviews and compares reports from all fund houses in a given Asian country. Based on a comprehensive methodology that includes quantitative benchmarks, weighted performance, and preference voting from Astute Investor awardees, they are then ranked accordingly.
“We are honored that a prominent regional body such as The Asset continues to hold PAMI in such high regard,” noted Eric Lustre, President and CEO of PAMI. “We have been on quite a winning streak lately, but rather than rest on our laurels, each award we receive motivates us to strive harder,” he added.
Apart from their company recognition, two members of their team were likewise given individual awards for their exceptional market knowledge, acumen in making investment decisions, and overall trading skills. Katherine Castelo, PAMI’s Head of Fixed Income Portfolio Management, and Katherina Dizon, Philam Life’s Deputy Head of Fixed Income Securities Trading Office both secured spots on the Philippines’ Most Astute Investors in Local Currency Bonds list for 2017, ranking 10th and 5th respectively.
“PAMI is truly committed to our objective of providing Filipinos with the kind of financial empowerment that they deserve. This can only be realized if we have the most passionate and talented people working together towards that goal,” Lustre enthused. “We have always believed that our people are our greatest asset, and Rina and J (awardees Castelo and Dizon) embody this,” he further noted.
