The analyst-driven Fund Manager of the Year award recognizes managers who delivered impressive performance in 2016, have generated excellent long-term risk-adjusted returns, and have been good stewards of fund shareholders' capital.
"We are very proud of Stephen and Bill and congratulate them on their win", said Mark Thomson, Managing Director, Equities. "As Beutel Goodman goes into our 50th year, the win supports our view that consistently adhering to a well-defined investment philosophy will deliver strong results over time.
