'Dutch investment world Oscars’ awarded
Evi van Lanschot yesterday evening scooped the Netherlands’ Gouden Stier (Golden Bull) award for best online asset manager. It won the coveted statuette for its scenario analyses of asset developments, its extensive quarterly reports and its clear and concise communications for novice investors, the jury commented.
Evi was up against four other nominees in the online asset manager category: Axento, KNAB, Pritle and Rabobank. Evi scored highly on organisation and given its longer track record, which proved decisive for the jury.
Richard Bruens, Managing Director of Private Banking and member of the Van Lanschot Executive Board, said: “We are proud to have won the 2016 Gouden Stier for best online asset manager in the Netherlands. The award recognises our distinct offering in online investment services. Evi stands out for giving access to the expertise of a private bank to online investors – people who are not investment experts, but who are looking to earn greater returns on their assets in an easy and transparent way. We knew that we were on the right track considering our clients’ own high rating of our Evi service, and this is borne out by the award."
In the past decade, the Gouden Stier has grown into a highly-coveted prize for investment products and services in the Netherlands, awarded by an independent jury. The golden statuettes are awarded annually to companies and products that stand out for their policies, communications, services or product offerings to private investors. The initiative is supported by the country’s major investment sites: Belegger.nl, IEX.nl, DeBeurs.nl and EuroBench.com.
