2017 Lipper Fund Awards: Awards for Kathrein Privatbank

Triple win for Kathrein Privatbank at the 2017 Lipper Fund Awards.

On March 16, the 2017 Thomson Reuters Lipper Fund Awards Austria were hosted in Vienna. With two Group Awards and one Fund Award Kathrein Privatbank won three of the coveted Awards.

The Group Award within the category Best Asset Manager Overall underscores Kathrein's excellence in managing asset allocation funds, and at the same time confirms its long-standing reputation as one of the best managers of equity and fixed income funds. Combined, these traits have made it the best Asset Manager Overall for the last three years.
The Group Award in the category Mixed Assets once again confirms the successful path Kathrein has been on for several years with its asset allocation funds within the Mandatum series. We apply the same award-winning asset allocation strategy to asset management as well as to a diverse range of special funds managed by Kathrein.

As the third award of the evening, Kathrein received the Fund Award for the best-in-class Absolute Return EUR Low Fund, the KCM Kathrein Pfandbrief+. This award is testimony to Kathrein's superb performance in the Absolute Return category.
Following the success at the Austrian Dachfonds Awards last fall, where Kathrein took home a win and several top scores, this year's nominations at the Lipper Fund Awards attest to Kathrein's proven competency in asset management.

"This award is a confirmation for our investment strategy, which is based on a scientific, quantitative investment approach and has made our funds a stable investment for many years," says a delighted Susanne Höllinger, CEO of Kathrein Privatbank.

Industry Highlight

The Lipper Fund Awards are one of the highlights of the year for the fund industry. For over 30 years, Lipper has been the global provider of fund analyses and fund ratings and has offices in major financial centers such as New York, London, Frankfurt, Paris, Hong Kong and Tokyo. The Lipper Awards and Ratings are conferred in 23 countries and are recognized as the global benchmark for fund performance ratings. They help institutional and retail investors as well as financial advisors to select funds and investment companies which consistently outperform.

Lipper not merely rates the performance of a fund, which usually leads to high error rates in the assessment of future earnings potential, it also follows a proprietary rating system with four rating categories: Lipper assesses absolute return, consistent return, preservation of capital, and expenses. The combination of those parameters gives the customers the right tools to weigh those individual characteristics before making their selections.
