The Vontobel Fund – Global Value Equity has won accolades in Austria. Morningstar, the fund research company, named it the best product in the "Global Large-Cap Equity" category. The awards testify to the fund's excellent performance in recent years.
While most stock markets suffered losses, Vontobel Fund – Global Value Equity gained 7.4% in EUR terms in 2011. The fund’s annual performance over three years stands at 15.3%.
“Putting together an equity portfolio is like diving for pearls,” says portfolio manager Rajiv Jain. “We invest only in quality companies that stand out in terms of the transparency of their business model, their profitability, solid balance sheets, free cash flow and competitive advantages. We are not bargain hunters, and we are instead prepared to pay a reasonable price,” said Jain, who has been working for Vontobel in New York for 17 years.
