"We are very excited about the future and are looking forward to continued growth and strong investment returns for our clients."

DDM claimed the prize ahead of some very strong international competition based on the following criteria:

  • Providing a product that offers diversification benefits to client portfolios

  • The predictability and stability of investment returns

  • A focus on downside protection

  • The increase and growth of assets under management

  • Its innovative and cost effective distribution methods

"We are delighted to have won such a prestigious award as recognition of the effectiveness and excellence of our investment process. It is a testament to the hard work and discipline of our investment team, combined with our innovative process, over the last 10 years," said Robert Milroy, Director of Dawnay Day Milroy.

The ninth Hedge Funds World Middle East conference was held between Monday 3 March and Thursday 6 March 2008 at the Madinat Jumeirah in Dubai. The accompanying awards dinner was hosted for the second time and recognises the leading providers to investors in the region.

Peter Niven, Chief Executive of GuernseyFinance – the promotional agency for the Island’s finance industry, added: "DDM winning this award highlights the high quality investment management expertise that there is in Guernsey. The Island not only provides the right environment for investment managers to establish operations but in particular for them to fill niches in the market through innovative and pioneering products."
