Morningstar has handed out its annual awards. Evli Global, managed by Hans-Kristian Sjöholm and his team, has been awarded as the winner in the Global Equity category in both Finland and Sweden.
The fund, which has five Morningstar stars, has been managed by the team since 2011 when the unique strategy focusing on companies producing strong cash flows was initiated. The strategy is implemented in all Evli Global Equity funds.
According to Morningstar Sweden Evli Global won because “Evli Global has with a risk lower than category average not only reached one of the highest returns during the past five years among global funds for sale in Sweden, but it has also risen more than category average six years in a row”.
“We are proud of these awards. They prove that unique and active stock selection strategies with a disciplined investment process still manage to add value” says Janne Lassila, Managing Director of Evli Fund Management Company Ltd.
Morningstar measures funds’ achievements over the previous year and also evaluates their returns over a longer term, taking risks into account. Morningstar is a provider of independent investment analyses and comparisons, and is best known for its mutual fund star ratings.
