Award for LLB Group’s equity and bond investment expertise
Vienna / Vaduz, 12 March 2019. LLB Group demonstrates long-standing equity and bond investment expertise in Austria by winning not just one, but several of the renowned Refinitiv Lipper Fund Awards 2019 in Vienna on 11 March 2019. The funds LLB Aktien Dividendenperlen Global (CHF) and LLB Strategie Festverzinslich (CHF) are rated top-in-class.
The LLB Aktien Dividendenperlen Global (CHF) fund scores twice in Austria in the Equity Global Income category – for its performance over the past 3 years and over the past 5 years. In February, the fund had already won an award in the Refinitiv Lipper Fund Awards 2019 in Switzerland. At this year’s awards in Vienna, another winner is the LLB Strategie Festverzinslich (CHF) fund, for its performance over the past five years, which once again confirms LLB Group’s reputation for excellent equity and bond management also in Austria.
The fund's selection of equities favours leading global companies with above-average expected dividend yields or shareholder yields. For this purpose, LLB Group’s asset management team has developed a proprietary dividend model which has generated excellent results based on qualitative, fundamental and quantitative selection criteria.
“LLB Group is proud to see numerous awards being conferred on its equity, bond and strategy funds, as this perfectly reflects LLB Group’s expertise as a reliable asset manager”, says Markus Wiedemann, Chief Investment Officer of LLB Group. “We are very pleased to have come out as the cross-border winner in the Equity Global Income category for all funds approved for distribution in Switzerland and Austria once again – an honour bestowed upon us already several times in a row – and to now have scored in the bond segment as well. This shows that LLB Group’s asset management is able to generate sustainable added value for its clients – even in difficult market phases. The secret of our success is to have systematic processes in place for investment in different asset classes.”
For more than three decades and in over 20 countries worldwide, the Refinitiv Reuters Lipper Fund Awards have been the most important recognition in the fund industry honouring consistently strong risk-adjusted performance by the best of the best. The awards were conferred on 11 March 2019 on the occasion of the Refinitiv Lipper Fund Awards 2019 Austria in Vienna. Refinitiv – formerly Thomson Reuters’ Financial & Risk business – is one of the largest providers of financial market data and infrastructure.
