Jupiter has taken this award away from Perpetual after the latter's six-year reign. Second place went to Fidelity and third place went to Skandia, which did not make it into the top three last year. Fidelity associate director of UK wholesale marketing David Cowdell says: "We are delighted to be recognising again in this category. I think the good thing about the awards is that, as well as recognising investment performance, they also look at marketing, the quality of service and dedication to product innovation, all of which we do well at Fidelity." Skandia marketing director Bill West says: "We are delighted at the level of support from IFAs for Skandia multisa. We have a strong track record of providing strong performance through mult-managers. It is an investment through multi-managers. It is an investment which we introduced some 16 years ago. For the coming year, we are confident we will have some really strong performance amoung our stable of high-quality fund links to match last year's record numbers."
