excellent returns achieved by the company's global fixed interest portfolio in 1999 and 2000.
In announcing the award, Morningstar commented that Colonial First State produced among the highest returns and the best
value for risk compared to other global fixed interest managers.
"Colonial First State is one of the few investment managers in New Zealand to manage a global fixed interest portfolio
locally," said Mr Abraham.

included some high-profile global investment managers."
