The LLB's high level of equity investment expertise once again has catapulted the LLB Equities Dividend Pearls Global (CHF) fund to the top. With this, the LLB also confirms its outstanding equity management in the Equity Global Income category. For the second year in a row, the fund has won for its performance over the past five years. It invests in a broadly diversified equity portfolio in order to generate the highest possible total return. The fund's selection of equities favours leading global companies with an above-average expected dividend yield or shareholder yield.

"In recent years, we have received many awards in different countries for our LLB funds. In addition to best group awards, we also have achieved top rankings with our equity and bond funds and especially our strategy funds. This demonstrates the LLB Group's expertise as an asset manager especially well," says Markus Wiedemann, Chief Investment Officer of the LLB Group. "We are all the more pleased to have won in the highly competitive Equity Global Income category for all funds authorised in Switzerland, now for the second time in a row. In this way, the LLB shows that it creates sustainable added value for its clients through systematic investment processes ¬– even in difficult years for equities such as 2018."
