Best Asset and Fund Manager in Indonesia (2015 – 2018)
Uniquely structured as a strategic joint venture between Indonesia’s state-owned investment bank, PT Bahana Pembinaan Usaha Indonesia and Los Angeles-based fund management group, Trust Company of the West (TCW) and with over US$3.5 billion (IDR 48.9 trillion) under management, Bahana TCW is a leading asset manager in Indonesia today.
Despite challenging market conditions in recent years, Bahana TCW has recorded a staggering average AUM (CAGR) growth of over 30.2 % per year since 2005, or for just over a decade, a fair indication of investor confidence in a non-bank backed investment holding company, independently managed with international standards. While markets in Indonesia have seen huge swings in recent years from the mutual funds pullout to pension reforms to regulatory overhaul, Bahana TCW has outperformed many of its peers in terms of fund performance, demonstrating consistency let alone in-depth understanding of volatile market moving dynamics.
From its thematic mixed mutual fund that focuses on Indonesian infrastructure to its money market fund, Bahana TCW not only has the product diversity but depth coupled with deep industry insights on the slightest possible factors that influence investor sentiments and market movements, illustrated best by investor confidence both at the retail as well as the institutional end of the investment spectrum, winning this award for the third consecutive year.
