Awarded by a group of European Media 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 100 rated funds.
Asset Managers are classified in 7 categories depending on their number of rated funds and their country. There are 5 categories for funds (Europe Large Cap, International Large Cap, Emerging Markets, Long Terms Bonds, International Opportunist).
Partners are part of the Eurofonds Group: FUNDCLASS, Le Monde, Paperjam-Delano, La Stampa, Le Jeudi, El Pais and LCI.

The ceremony takes place in Paris every year between February and March and it is presided over by a leader 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.
