Lipper Fund Awards

2012 German Fund Award Winner Interviews

Recognizing the world’s top performing funds

The Lipper Fund Awards program honors funds that have excelled in delivering consistently strong risk-adjusted performance, relative to peers. In addition, the Lipper Fund Awards program recognizes fund families with high average scores for all funds within a particular asset class or overall. The Lipper Fund Awards take place in 23 countries in Asia, Europe, MENA, and the Americas. The awards winners are formally announced between January and April. Ceremonies take place in select countries. Press coverage is provided by our local media partners who often co-sponsor the awards with our parent company, Thomson Reuters.

Lipper designates award-winning funds in most individual classifications for the three-, five-, and ten-year periods and fund families with high average scores for the three-year time period. The top three-year classification winners and fund family winners receive trophies at the ceremonies. Please review the Lipper Fund Awards methodology document to learn more about how the awards are calculated.

Lipper Fund Awards are part of the broader Thomson Reuters Awards for Excellence program. Please visit the Lipper Awards website for more details about the Lipper Fund Awards. If you have specific questions about the event, please send an email to
