Hostplus wins Superfund of the Year award despite COVID-related upheaval


Alongside the Lonsec fund awards, investment research firm SuperRatings has presented its own awards in the wider managed and passive fund space.

Perpetual Asset Management won Lonsec’s Total Fund of the Year in recognition of its “well-established investment philosophy and process, as well as a long-standing and strong investment culture.” Perpetual also won Multi-Asset Fund of the Year.

Lorraine Robinson, executive director of research at Lonsec, says Perpetual is committed to its investment style and has maintained its approach through multiple investment cycles. Rob Adams, chief executive of Perpetual, described the win as a testament to the brand’s approach.

Perpetual is known as a “value” manager, meaning that it prefers to invest in good companies with good management whose shares are trading below what Perpetual believes to be their true value.

Lonsec also introduced a new category for its awards, Sustainable Fund of the Year, which was won by the Martin Currie Ethical Income Fund.

“The [Fund] excels in both environmental, social and governance and sustainability and has delivered consistent excess returns over the past few years,” says Lonsec’s Robinson.
