Event Details

Join us in-person to celebrate the efforts of asset management companies that have pushed the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) agenda forward.

We invite you to attend the inaugural 2023 Honordex Multi-Strategy Awards Ceremony, where we will be honouring the multi-strategy funds that have demonstrated the strongest commitment and investment into Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI).

First launched in 2021, Honordex is a comprehensive digital platform and evaluation tool developed by Equality Group to analyse companies on their DEI performance based on publicly available data. It helps companies to benchmark themselves against peers and develop actionable steps to improve their DEI performance.  

In addition, the event will feature a stimulating panel discussion exploring intersectional equity in asset management and how it can shape the industry's future.

Use our hashtag #Honordex on your socials and let us know which company or individual is making a positive difference in the Asset Management Industry. 


A select number of tickets are available. Register for free today to secure yours and join our Pre-Event Room using the GlueUp App. (Android​) (IOS​). We look forward to seeing you there!
