Asset manager Alfred Berg is back on top of this year's best performance list of External Asset Management in Norway. The runner-up spots are occupied by the asset management arms of Storebrand, Nordea, Danske Bank, DNB and KLP.
The list is based on a Prospera survey involving 74 interviews. Alfred Berg also claimed the top position in 2018, though this honor went to Nordea last year.
The largest bank in Norway, DNB, has not been able to do better than placing fourth or fifth on the Prospera list for the last three years.
Alfred Berg has achieved a double win, as the company also tops the list of best performance among Fund Distributors and Selectors. On this Prospera list, Odin Fondene, Storebrand, KLP and DNB Asset Management are among the frontrunners.
