Evli chosen as the best fund house in the Nordics

The Lipper Fund Awards have presented this year's fund awards. Evli Fund Management Company was chosen as the best Nordic fund house in the category Small Fund Companies. In addition, Evli's funds again achieved the top spot both at the European level and in major European countries.

The Evli Emerging Frontier fund won first place in the emerging markets category at the European level, as well as in the Nordic countries and France. The Evli Target Maturity Nordic Bond 2023 fund, managed by Jani Kurppa and Juhamatti Pukka, was also awarded in Europe and Germany.
