Best Fund Manager Awards go to the individual fund manager generating the highest risk-adjusted returns in a particular sector in Switzerland over the past three years to 31 January 2018. These are based on the individual track records for all the funds they have run in the sector over this period.

Best Fund Manager Awards are derived by isolating the individuals with the highest risk-adjusted returns at a sector level over three years to 31 January 2018. In order to qualify, fund managers must run a fund registered for sale in Switzerland.

Our ratings methodologies are actuarially approved by AKG Actuaries & Consultants.
