Old Mutual Global Investors won two major accolades at the 2015 European Funds Trophy Awards in Paris last week.
The company scooped the award for Best Long Term Management of a range of funds, in the 41-70 rated funds category and Best International Large Cap Fund for the Old Mutual Global Equity fund for the second year running.
Now in its ninth year, the European Funds Trophy rewards the best European asset management companies and funds for the global quality of their European fund range. The shortlisted managers are assessed for quality by a panel of five professional jurors from the finance industry.
The awards are organised by FUNDCLASS in cooperation with media from across Europe including La Stampa, Le Jeudi, Tageblagt, El Pais, L’Opinion and LCI.
This is the third year Old Mutual Global Investors have been awarded a top accolade at the European Funds Trophy Awards. They won Best European Asset Management Company in the 8 -15 rated funds category in 2014 and Best United Kingdom Asset Manager in 2013.
Allan Macleod, Head of International Distribution at Old Mutual Global Investors, comments:
“We are delighted to have been acknowledged again at these prestigious awards. Europe continues to be a key market for Old Mutual Global Investors and being awarded for the long term management of our funds clearly demonstrates that we are highly regarded within the European market place.
“With over 84% of our funds ranked above the median of their investment sectors and 74% in the first quartile over three years, we see this award as independent recognition that we are a top class asset management company, which is important to us as we look to further enhance our distribution in Europe in 2015.”
