Evli is the first Finnish asset management house that can boast a medalist in Morningstar’s European awards gala, which recognizes Europe’s most skilled portfolio managers. Mikael Lundström, who heads Evli’s fixed income team, was selected as one of the top three European fixed income portfolio managers.
Mikael Lundström, who is the portfolio manager of the Evli European High Yield and Evli Corporate Bond funds and head of Evli’s fixed income team, received an award in the European Fixed Income Manager of the Year series.
30 independent analysts at Morningstar participated in the rating of European funds. The funds were evaluated according to rigorous criteria based on a five-pillar methodology. In addition to return performance, analysts also evaluated the parent organization’s ability to act in the best interests of unit holders and the way it does this, the quality of portfolio management as a team, the strength of the overall process, and costs.
“Mikael’s placement in the top three is an outstanding achievement that reflects the high quality of the entire fixed income team’s daily work. Mikael has been working at Evli since 1996. He is now reaping the benefits of his uncompromising dedication to his work,” says Maunu Lehtimäki, Evli’s Chief Executive Officer.
