There are four main criteria. Consistent returns over the past five years account for a weight of 40% in the overall score. The three other criteria, which each account for 20% of the overall score, are the 5-year return, the performance during bear markets and the risk-weighted return over 5 years.
This award is the result of intensive active management, a sustainable approach to financial management and society at large, and strong investments in research.
