AP4 erhöll i konkurrens med andra europeiska förvaltare pris för fondens globala aktieförvaltning. Priset gavs med följande motivering:
AP4 were shortlisted subjectively by the FN editorial team who considered, where available: recent investment performance, risk-adjusted investment performance over three years, fund flows, reputation amongst peers, significant hires, innovations and business developments, and any other considerations considered pertinent. The shortlist was then put to a distinguished independent panel of industry practitioners who casted their votes electronically on the shortlisted companies/individuals.
AP4 were triumphant as they were the nominee with the highest percentage from the accumulated scores in their category.
