Jupiter’s Cédric de Fonclare wins prestigious Morningstar Fund Manager of the Year Award for European Equities
Jupiter manager Cédric de Fonclare has won the Morningstar European Fund Manager of the Year Award 2011 in the category of European Equity for his management of the top-performing Jupiter European Special Situations Fund. Morningstar is a leading provider of independent investment research.
The Morningstar European Fund Awards aim to recognise fund managers in Europe who have demonstrated excellence in the past year, and who have proven to be great stewards for shareholders´ capital over the long term. The awards are presented in two categories: European Equity and Global Equity.
When announcing the awards, Christopher Traulsen, CFA, Morningstar’s director of fund research for Europe and Asia commented:
“Cédric de Fonclare is highly experienced and has a flair for bottom-up stock selection informed by a strong awareness of the macro environment. De Fonclare consistently applies a distinctive style, and has delivered for investors across different market environments during his tenure. In 2010, he guided Jupiter European Special Situations to a return of 16.03% (EUR), a top-quintile showing in the Morningstar Europe ex UK Large-Cap Equity category, while in 2008’s tumultuous market, he kept the fund’s losses less than 85% of its peers’*. Over the course of his tenure, he has delivered strong performance for investors whilst limiting downside risk. He’s an excellent fund manager who fully deserves this award.”
Nominations for the awards are made by Morningstar’s 30-member fund research team located in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, The Netherlands, and Norway. To qualify for a nomination, at least one fund under a fund manager’s leadership must have a Morningstar or OBSR qualitative rating and must be available for sale in at least one European market. Cédric has also been recognised by OBSR recently as he picked up the Rising Talent honour in the OBSR Awards 2010.
John Chatfeild-Roberts, Chief Investment Officer of Jupiter Asset Management, said:
”Cédric is a talented fund manager with the ability and commitment to deliver strong and consistent long-term returns. This award is an excellent recognition of his achievements and of the Jupiter investment culture where managers work in a collegiate environment while taking individual responsibility for the management of their funds.
“It is also particularly meaningful as these awards are drawn from a Europe-wide pool of managers by independent analysts who operate in the wider European fund arena.”
