For more than three decades and in more than 20 countries around the world, the Thomson Reuters Lipper Fund Awards have honored money and fund management companies who have distinguished themselves by consistently risk-adjusted performance in comparison to their peers. Renowned fund data and proprietary methodology is the foundation of the award. Individual awards of three, five, and ten-year periods as well as fund families with high averages for the three-year period are approved.
For 2017, Commodity Capital AG was awarded with the Thomson Reuters Lipper Fund Award (Equity Sector Materials for Europe and Germany) with the fund "Structured Solutions Next Generation Resources Fund", which was already awarded by the Euro Rating Awards for "Top Five"in 2011.
The fund's price has more than doubled in 2016 (+ 127.4%). In order to continue the above-average performance, the investment universe of the Structured Solutions Lithium Index Strategy Fund was expanded to include companies that promote so-called "Next Generation" resources by March 1, 2017, and has been given a new name: Structured Solutions Next Generation Resources Fund.
Examples of such future-oriented resources are graphite and magnesium, which are required for the production of lithium-ion batteries, but have so far been less focused. Here there is also currently a shortage of demand and therefore a great potential for the producers.
As a globally established innovative specialist in the field of precious metals and raw materials, Commodity Capital AG will continue to pursue a positive market in 2017 and continue to expect outstanding performance figures.
