For the third consecutive year KD Funds has won the prestigious World Finance award for best investment management company in Slovenia

KD Funds has beaten its competition and won the prestigious award given by World Finance, a renowned British magazine, for the best investment management company in Slovenia in 2017. The award was granted after considering numerous criteria, including management performance, capital adequacy, risk management as well as others such as service provision, leadership, consistency and the goals set. Voting for the finalists for the award, which has been presented by the World Finance magazine for ten years, took place between August 2016 and January 2017. The expert panel then selected the winner out of three finalists from each country.

KD Funds also won the award in 2015 and 2016, convinced the panel with both its long-standing achievements – the company is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year – as well as its results for last year, notably through the quality of its service, management performance, care for investors and risk exposure management. The judging panel has been presenting the awards since 2007, celebrating the very best companies in the industry with the ability to outperform the market, offer exceptional customer support and generate returns for their investors.

Investment Management Awards recognise companies making the most significant progress, thereby contributing to the industry’s development through their achievement, innovation and overall brilliance. The size of a company is not relevant, what counts is its business and professional performance. This year, Investment Management Awards were presented to companies that proved themselves agile last year, even in an ever changing economic climate.

“KD Funds is the oldest Slovenian management company, building long-term relations with investors based on trust and loyalty. The many domestic and international awards we have won are mostly recognition of our past efforts, the high quality of our investment management, products and services as well as the excellence and expertise of the company and its teams. The World Finance award places us on the map of the very best management companies, whilst also motivating us to set even higher goals. It confirms our belief that a key advantage in a rapidly changing business environment is the ability to adapt to changes quickly”, says Luka Podlogar, President of the Management Board of KD Funds.
