Aktia named Finland’s best fund house for fixed-income in the Morningstar Awards 2022 comparison

(PRESS RELEASE) HELSINKI, 28-Feb-2022 — /EuropaWire/ — Aktia Bank Plc (HEL: AKTIA), a Finnish asset manager, bank and life insurer, has announced that it has been selected as Finland’s best fund house for fixed-income funds as well as for the overall selection in the Morningstar Awards 2022 comparison which was published today. Morningstar is an independent party carrying out fund comparisons and selecting the best fund houses annually based on the five-year risk-adjusted return.

The analysis company Morningstar, specialising in funds, awarded prizes in three fund house categories: equity fund management, fixed-income fund management and wealth management in terms of the overall selection. The best wealth managers are selected based on the five-year risk-adjusted return, and the funds compared must be available to small investors in Finland. Aktia won both the fixed-income category and the overall category.

“Morningstar is a respected independent party and succeeding in this comparison always feels great. Aktia’s wealth management services have been repeatedly rewarded both in Morningstar’s and in several other actors’ comparisons. It shows the outstanding expertise of Aktia’s wealth management and that we have succeeded in our long-term work,” says Perttu Purhonen, Director in charge of Aktia’s asset management.

The acknowledgement received today reflects Aktia’s successful portfolio management and wide range of products. Winning in the overall category shows that Aktia has a fund selection that clearly adds value to its customers. Last year, the selection of investment objects was further expanded when Aktia acquired Taaleri’s wealth management business.

“We want to offer our customers the best wealth management expertise in Finland now and in the future. Our success in the comparison is a strong token that our active portfolio management is profitable, which is above all reflected in the development of our customers’ investments,” Purhonen continues.

Aktia’s assets under management on 31 December 2021 amounted to EUR 15.5 billion.
