On 12 March, Swiss Life Asset Managers was awarded the prize for the best diversified asset management at the pyramides de la gestion de patrimoine. The pyramides de la gestion de patrimoine is organised by the magazine "Investissement Conseils" to distinguish the best performers in different sectors including life insurance, retirement, real estate and asset management.
Among the eight UCITS categories in asset management (equities and bonds from different geographical zones and sectors, diversified and flexible) the fund SLF (F) Défensive P Cap Eur (isin FR0010308825) was nominated best diversified, flexible asset manager.
The methodology applied by Investissement Conseils and Quantalys aims to identify the best performance-adjusted risk-based management approaches over a five-year period. Besides pure performance, the specific risk-ratio analysis enables the selection of the most robust UCITS over the period under review.
This prize is the latest recognition of the diversified management approach taken by Swiss Life Asset Managers, following the globe d'or from Gestion de Fortune as the best patrimonial fund, the asset management awards from AGEFI, the Trophées du Revenu and Lipper awards won in 2014.

Our FCP fits well into our asset management approach. It tracks the growth of the financial markets while maintaining optimal hedging against short-term crises. The lessons of 2008 have led us to adopt a two-pronged approach: identification of phases in the economic cycle and the analysis of relative risks between asset classes. This approach involves dynamic risk management in tune with the current environment and its susceptibility to sudden and striking crises. The resulting risk-return profile aligns perfectly with our aim of remaining robust throughout the economic cycle.
