The strategy seeks to provide positive returns over a market cycle regardless of market conditions or general market direction.
“The Refinitiv Lipper Fund Awards celebrate exceptional investment management. In a year of dramatic change across the global economy, climate, the environment and political cultures, it has never been more important to have your investments entrusted with talented and experienced professionals. The Refinitiv Lipper Fund Awards recognize those exceptional managers and fund management groups who navigate these changes and steer your savings into outperforming returns,” said Robert Jenkins, Head of Research, Lipper, Refinitiv.
