Evli has won the “Best Group Bond - Overall Small Company” award at the European Lipper Fund Awards 2019. Evli was awarded for its superior firm-wide results, excellent fixed income knowledge and outstanding performance of its product range. The European award follows a series of Lipper Fund Awards earlier this year in both France and Germany.
Evli Short Corporate Bond fund, managed by Juhamatti Pukka, was also awarded both “Best Fund over 3 years” and “Best Fund over 5 years” in the “Bond EUR Corporates Short Term” category at the European Lipper Fund Awards.
“We are very grateful for the awards. They are a testament to the strong competitiveness of our fixed income expertise in Europe and the strength of our funds. Evli has done uncompromising work in the fixed income asset class for 20 years and it is great to see the results. Our success is built on our flexible investment strategy based on the best risk-return ratio and strong expertise in the European and Nordic corporate bond markets. In addition, the awards received by Evli Short Corporate Bond are an indication of the international competitiveness of our funds,” Mikael Lundström, Chief Investment Officer at Evli Fund Management Company comments.
