SYZ Asset Management awarded “Best Group over 3 years – Overall Small Company” by Lipper Fund Awards Switzerland 2017
Geneva, 23 February 2017 – SYZ Asset Management, the institutional management arm of the SYZ Group, has won the award for “Best Group over 3 years – Overall Small Company” during the 2017 Thomson Reuters Lipper Fund Awards Switzerland. The prize rewards the excellent performance across its product range. Additionally, OYSTER Continental Europe Selection R GBP was awarded best fund in the category “Equity Europe ex UK” over three years.
The Lipper Fund Awards Switzerland took place in Zurich on 31 January. The awards honour fund management firms and individual mutual funds that excel in delivering consistently strong risk-adjusted performance, relative to their peers.
Commenting on the occasion, Ms Katia Coudray, CEO of SYZ Asset Management said, “This award is welcome recognition of investment performance and process excellence across our business, as we continue to develop active management strategies that generate significant alpha for our clients”.
Since her appointment as CEO of SYZ Asset Management in 2015, Katia Coudray has boosted the development of existing and new strategies, notably in high-conviction equities, active fixed income and multi-asset solutions.
Additionally, the OYSTER Continental European Selection fund was awarded best fund in the category “Equity Europe ex UK” over 3 years. The fund is managed by Michael Clements, Head of European Equities based in London. This is a high-conviction strategy with a long-term contrarian approach to investing in European equities. The active bottom-up selection, based on in-house fundamental research, paired with a relentless focus on downside risk, leads to contrarian positions in high quality companies suffering from short-term pressures.
