Comgest wins Morningstar Manager of the Year award

Comgest wins Morningstar Manager of the Year award

Comgest 150London, 20 March 2015

Wojciech Stanislawski, portfolio manager at Comgest, the independent, international asset management group, was last night named “Global Equity Fund Manager of the Year” at the Morningstar European Fund Manager of the Year Awards 2015. The awards took place at Morningstar’s Institutional Conference in Amsterdam.

Last week, Comgest was also awarded “Best Fund House: Specialist Equity” at the Morningstar Fund Awards 2015 in Luxembourg, recognising its robust performance across its entire portfolio range by selecting quality growth companies.

Wojciech Stanislawski, alongside Vincent Strauss, won the award for his management of the Comgest Growth Emerging Markets and Magellan funds. Both Stanislawski and Strauss have managed emerging markets equity portfolios at Comgest for more than 15 years. Strauss and Stanislawski maintain stringent investment criteria, when selecting stocks, resulting in one of the most compelling risk/return trade-offs in the Morningstar Global Emerging Markets Equity Category. In 2014 their funds ended up comfortably in the top quartile as the strategy proved highly rewarding during the second half of the year when volatility surged.

This is the third time in the last four years that Comgest has been nominated for this prestigious award. Stanislawski and Strauss were nominated in the same category last year and in 2012, Laurent Dobler and Arnaud Cosserat were awarded “European Equity Fund Manager of the Year”.

The winners of Morningstar’s European Fund Manager of the Year Awards are nominated and selected by Morningstar’s 30 plus strong team of qualitative fund analysts across Europe. Funds are put through a rigorous evaluation by the analysts who weigh the quality of management, the strength of the process used to run the fund, the quality of the parent organisation – including how it treats investors in its funds—performance, and costs.

Arnaud Cosserat, CIO at Comgest, commented: “With only three ‘Manager of the Year’ awards given away in Europe by Morningstar each year, we are extremely pleased for both Stanislawski and Strauss. The award is testament to Comgest’s robust investment strategy focusing on quality growth companies.”
