The Strategic Europe Quality Fund, managed by Willem Vinke, was recognised as a top performing UCITS Equity Fund at the Investors Choice Awards 2020 for short and long-term performance. The Fund outperformed its peer group and achieved outstanding risk-adjusted absolute returns.
The Top Performer Awards are given to the select few funds which have outperformed their wider peer group in each category. Winners are determined based on quantitative risk adjusted returns.
For 2020 the decision was made to extend the time period under consideration to allow for an evaluation of how managers navigated both 2019, but also the market turbulence caused by COVID-19 in early 2020. The 2020 Top Performer award winners were therefore based on absolute returns from 1 January 2019 to 30 April 2020; whilst the long term category considered returns from 1 January 2017 to April 2020.
Peter Lindqvist, CEO, Eric Sturdza Investments comments: “We’re delighted that our Strategic Europe Quality Fund has been recognised as one of the top funds in the industry. This is testament to the Fund’s valuation-driven investment approach, which is focused on buying shares in high-quality businesses at discounted prices. Our focus is on delivering consistent and long-term value for our clients. I would like to congratulate Willem and his team for their tireless commitment and conviction to generating alpha for clients over the past year.”
