Lipper: LGT Capital Management is the best European fund company

April 7, 2011
At the Lipper Fund Awards Europe 2011, Thomson Reuters named LGT Capital Management the "Best Group" in the "Overall Large" category. In addition to the Group award, which was also won in Germany and Austria, the multi-asset-class funds and one multi-manager fund also received top marks.

The decisive factor in the award for best fund company was the excellent risk-adjusted returns of the funds across a broad range of products. Overall, LGT Capital Management currently has around 50 funds on the market. “We try to offer our clients a focused and manageable range of products that only covers the investment strategies in which we really have the greatest competence,” said Torsten de Santos, CEO of LGT Capital Management, about his company’s success.

As was the case in Germany and Austria, the Strategy Funds of LGT Capital Management were also honored at European level. The LGT Strategy Funds are dynamic, mixed-asset-class funds for which various risk-return profiles and individual investment horizons can be selected. In addition, a shortfall approach is used to limit the likelihood of losses at the end of a predefined period.

LGT Multi Manager Bond (USD), which also received an award, invests worldwide in emerging market government bonds. The investments are not made directly in individual securities, but rather indirectly via the active selection of external asset managers.
