Philam Asset Management, Inc. (PAMI) continues on reaping awards in its pursuit of excellence. Recently, its successful run of citations included The Asset Magazine’s list of top Investment Houses.

“We are honored that a prominent regional body such as The Asset continues to hold PAMI in such high regard,” noted Eric Lustre, President and CEO of PAMI. “We have been on quite a winning streak lately, but rather than rest on our laurels, each award we receive motivates us to strive harder,” he added.
Apart from their company recognition, two members of their team were likewise given individual awards for their exceptional market knowledge, acumen in making investment decisions, and overall trading skills. Katherine Castelo, PAMI’s Head of Fixed Income Portfolio Management, and Katherina Dizon, Philam Life’s Deputy Head of Fixed Income Securities Trading Officeboth secured spots on the Philippines’ Most Astute Investors in Local Currency Bonds list for 2017, ranking 10th and 5th respectively.
“PAMI is truly committed to our objective of providing Filipinos with the kind of financial empowerment that they deserve. This can only be realized if we have the most passionate and talented people working together towards that goal,” Lustre enthused. “We have always believed that our people are our greatest asset, and Rina and J (awardees Castelo and Dizon) embody this,” he further noted.
