Awarded by a European Media group gathering France, Italy, Spain and Luxembourg, the EUROPEAN FUNDS TROPHY rewards the best funds and Asset Managers across Europe.

Partners wish to give a summary of the best funds and Asset Managers in Europe and to inform all their readers with an easy ranking.

The analysis' accuracy is based on the APT methodology. The results are verified by 5 professional jurors from the Finance industry. Every year, we reward around 50 Asset Management Companies with a range of funds from 4 to more than 200 rated funds.
Asset Managers are classified in 8 categories depending on their number of rated funds and their country. There are 8 categories for funds (International Value, International Growth, US Value, US Growth, Europe Value, Europe Growth, Emerging Markets, Europe Medium Terms Bonds).
Partners are part of the Eurofonds Group: FUNDCLASS, Le Monde, Paperjam-Delano, La Stampa, El Pais and LCI.

The ceremony takes place in Paris every year between February and March and it is presided over by one or two leaders of the European Financial industry.

After an opening adress made by the year's special guest, a delegate of each awarded company is called on stage to receive the trophy in front of more than 200 professionals.
To enjoy the end of the evening, all participants can book seats and/or tables to attend the gala dinner. This is a perfect opportunity to show off your company profile and meet the other best European Asset Managers in this magnificent location.
