This year we have added new criteria - more details below. 

Investors' Award for Outstanding Achievement

Launched in 2019 and with new criteria for 2021, this award, open to all AREF Fund Members is judged by a panel of key fund investors. Members are invited to nominate their fund by stating, in no more than 500 words, how their fund excels and why it should be considered for this award based on Governance, progress towards Net Zero Carbon or their firms response to Covid-19.

The deadline for submission has been extended to 15th July 2021.

We have also added a new award to the line up, 'The AREF Research Award' and we would be very grateful if you could pass this onto your Research teams - for more information on this click here

These awards, along with our other awards 'Affiliate of the Year' and 'Outstanding Individual Contribution of the Year' will all be presented at a virtual awards ceremony in September
