Press release: 09/08/2010

LV= Asset Management (LVAM), the fund management arm of insurance, investment and pensions group LV=, has announced that the LV= European ex-UK Growth Fund has secured an OBSR ‘A’ rating.

LV= European ex-UK Growth Fund was launched in 2003 and is managed jointly by Mark Page, Richard Falle and Laurent Millet. The team’s management style combines an awareness of economic fundamentals, market conditions and an in-depth understanding of future growth.

OBSR commented: “The fund offers investors exposure to a core European fund constructed using a combination of bottom-up research and top-down analysis. The approach is complemented by disciplined risk management that has contributed to the generation of attractive risk-adjusted returns since launch. We therefore believe the fund merits inclusion in our Service.”

Matthew Wright, Head of Sales, LVAM, said: “It is excellent to receive this rating from OBSR. Our style of managing money – which prioritises security over short-term gains – delivers strong long-term results and LV= European ex-UK Growth Fund is a prime example of this.”
