Message from the Lead Judge

The State Street Institutional Press Awards, Asia Pacific recognize the finest reporting and writing covering pensions, investment, alternatives, investor services and financial technology over the past 12 months. Welcoming entries in English and Chinese from publications across the Asia-Pacific region, the Awards seek to identify and encourage superlative business journalism in markets that are expanding rapidly, but where issues driving best practice, accountability, transparency, innovation and new developments in finance and investing are decidedly under-covered. Entries will be independently judged by a panel of six from the investment, financial services and journalism sectors. Our goal: To set a high bar for journalists in the institutional space to vie for and surpass. Enter here.

"Bringing the State Street Institutional Press Awards to Asia is about giving regional trade media a louder voice in a fast growing sector. The judges are looking for sophisticated, thoughtful coverage which provides insights to both professional and layman audiences. I'm confident the awards program will help raise journalistic standards, too, as reporters vie for these accolades."

Jonathan Brasse

Editor, PERE

"The State Street Institutional Press Awards are the awards for journalists and editors actively reporting on the world’s institutions, the regulation that governs them and the investments they undertake. Victory here is more than a CV entry. It is a badge of honour."

Rita Raagas De Ramos

Former Managing Editor, Ignites Asia

"Journalists who are serious about their craft already hold themselves to very high standards. But having credible, independently judged awards – such as the State Street Institutional Press Awards – help push these standards even higher."

Jame DiBiasio

Former Editorial Director, Haymarket Financial Media

"The Awards help an industry raise the bar. Financial journalism in Asia is evolving as quickly as the region’s capital markets are developing. This makes the State Street Institutional Press Awards a timely means of identifying quality and professionalism. Winning is a great way to signal to our audiences that Haymarket Financial Media publications are the best in class. It helps with recruitment and team spirit, and also gives the salespeople one more angle."

Allen T. Cheng

Contributing Editor, Euromoney and Asiamoney magazines

"The State Street Press Awards, Asia Pacific, is the most prestigious award of excellence a financial journalist can win in Asia. The judges seriously canvass the field for the best entries and are very strict and disciplined in their approach to selection, so much so that those who win can truly be proud!"
