Vaduz, 9 March 2018. At the presentation of the renowned Thomson Reuters Lipper Fund Awards 2018 in Vienna, the Liechtensteinische Landesbank (LLB) received the award for LLB Equities Real Estate Global (CHF) as the best real estate equity fund over three years.

Award for LLB Equities Real Estate Global (CHF)

The fund has been in existence for over ten years and manages more than CHF 80 million. The fund enables investors to invest in an internationally diversified portfolio of real estate companies. The fund management ensures a broad coverage of the overall market. The term "real estate companies" refers to companies involved in the planning, construction, ownership, administration, or distribution of residential, commercial, or industrial properties as well as capital companies in the real estate sector, namely closed REITs (real estate investment trusts).

Following various awards from Thomson Reuters Lipper in Switzerland and Germany, the latest award is a further recognition of the LLB Group's successful asset management across a wide range of asset classes.

"The award for LLB Equities Real Estate Global (CHF) as the best real estate equity fund in Austria is another of numerous awards in several countries that we have received in recent years for our funds. In addition to various equity and bond funds, our strategy funds in particular have also achieved top positions, providing especially strong evidence of our competence as an asset manager. In the top categories of best Overall Small Company and best Bonds Small Company, we recently received awards for our funds registered for sale in Switzerland," says Markus Wiedemann, Chief Investment Officer of the LLB Group. "In this way, the LLB has shown once again that it creates sustainable added value for its clients through systematic investment processes."

The LLB Equities Dividend Pearls Global (CHF) fund, which just today – 9 March – is celebrating its 20th anniversary, is another example of the outstanding equity management offered by LLB Asset Management. The fund received the Lipper Switzerland award in the Equity Global Income category for its performance over the past five years.
