Pensions & Investments employees were recognized by the American Society of Business Publication Editors, winning two regional awards for their work in 2022.
The awards are open to U.S.-based business-to-business, trade, association and professional publications, both digital and print. More than 800 entries spanning work over the course of 2022 were received in various categories, ASBPE said.
In the category of online, state of the industry coverage, P&I reporters, editors and web producers won a regional gold award — the highest recognition — for the 2022 Largest Money Managers special report, published June 6. As a regional gold winner, the entry also is a finalist for a national award to be announced in May.
The report, based on P&I's proprietary annual money managers survey, took stock of the state of the industry, rocked in 2022 by the war in Ukraine, rising inflation and the easing of central bank policies. A custom microsite showcased stories as well as data that illustrated the pressures facing managers, the competition between BlackRock Inc. and Vanguard Group for the title of the largest institutional manager, the growth of ESG investing, and how specific strategies, such as investing in alternatives, were likely in for a rocky second half of the year.
In the category of government coverage, P&I Washington Bureau Chief Brian Croce won a regional silver award for stories outlining the expected legal challenges to come over an SEC proposal that would mandate public companies disclose a bevy of climate-related information in their registration statements and periodic reports; a look at a potential new DOL proposal to regulate fiduciary investment advice; and a piece tied to the midterm elections that looked at how SEC and DOL regulation could change if control of the House flipped.
