DWS Wins Golden Diamond Award at TFF-Bloomberg Best Fund Awards 2024


DWS is proud to announce that its DWS Invest Euro High Yield Corporates has been awarded the Golden Diamond award in the category Overseas funds – three years at the TFF-Bloomberg Best Fund Awards 2024 presented by the Taipei Financial Research and Development Foundation (TFF) in collaboration with Bloomberg.  

The TFF Bloomberg Best Fund Awards 2024 recognises excellence in fund management and performance. Award winners demonstrated outstanding achievements in delivering strong returns to investors while upholding the highest standards of professionalism and integrity.

In response to receiving this prestigious award, Per Wehrmann, Head of European High Yield said: “We are truly honoured to receive the Golden Diamond award. This recognition is a testament to the dedication and expertise of our investment team, as well as our commitment to outstanding investment solutions for our clients.”

The goal of DWS's investment in European non-investment grade debt funds, which may be funded by principal interest, is to earn above-average returns, with at least 70% of the fund's assets invested in global corporate bonds that were then non-investment grade. The non-investment grade covered bonds with BB+ grade and lower rating, including bonds with D grade and outstanding grade. Up to 30% of the fund's assets are invested in corporate bonds that do not meet the above criteria. Fund managers aim to avoid any currency risk in their portfolios relative to the euro (see the public note for details).

Eva Huang, CEO of DWS Far Eastern Taiwan added: "We are delighted that the DWS Invest Euro High Yield Corporates fund has won this award, which recognises our commitment to delivering returns for our clients while keeping risk management at our core. By leveraging DWS' extensive global investment solutions and deep expertise, we are confidently poised for further growth."
