Darwin Property wins at LAPF Investment awards for third consecutive year
- Created: 20 Sep 2017
Darwin Property Investment Management (Darwin Property) has been named ‘Alternatives Manager of the Year” for the third consecutive year at the LAPF Investments Magazine annual awards. Indeed, having won the inaugural award in 2015, Darwin Property is the only manager to have won this award.
The awards recognise managers who have demonstrated innovation; outstanding communication, engagement and delivery; and strong performance and are judged by a panel of independent industry experts.
Darwin Property is the investment adviser to the Darwin Leisure Property Fund, which is the only fund to invest in the UK holiday park industry and which offers pension scheme investors stable, long-term returns which are uncorrelated with any other asset class. The Fund owns and operates a portfolio of 20 holiday parks around the UK under the ‘Darwin Escapes’ brand (www.darwinescapes.co.uk), many of which are award winning themselves. Darwin’s innovative investment strategy, commitment to client service and impressive performance record, which averages 14.1%* per annum over five years, were key factors in winning the coveted award.
Anthony Esse, CEO of Darwin Property Investment Management, commented “To win this award for a third successive year is a phenomenal achievement of which the whole Darwin Property team is very proud. Our focus is very much on creating long-term investment solutions for pension funds which help them to meet their pension liabilities, and winning this award is a further endorsement that we are achieving this.”
