One might think, “Why are they bragging, while some other funds have higher current returns?”.
Let us explain that only professionals acting in the industry themselves providednominations and votes deciding on ranking results. As industry experts, they have an excellent knowledge and understanding of financial industry. They are very well aware that quality of investment funds is not only in current short-term higher returns. Series of other factors should be also considered in ranking assessment: volatility of returns, returns in various length periods, duration of operations (BEF Fund is already in its sixth calendar year of investing), the quality and reliability of external service providers (Deutsche bank, JP Funds, BDO, Ogier, Generali …), returns compared to other funds with similar strategies (geographically, investment management), etc.
Despite the fact that BEF Fund investment strategy focuses on the region neglected and mainly overlooked in recent years, BEF Fund realized positive net returns for its investors every year. Moreover, time for best returns is yet to come. We believe that beginning of major growth of Balkan markets is in front of us.
