Coalition Greenwich: Union Investment is a 2021 Greenwich Quality Leader
Coalition Greenwich has named Union Investment a "Greenwich Quality Leader" in Overall German Institutional Investment Management for the fourth time (after 2015, 2019 and 2020).
This is the result of this year's research of institutional investors in Germany by Coalition Greenwich, the leading global provider of strategic benchmarking, analytics and insights to the financial services industry. According to their firm, Greenwich Quality Leaders set themselves apart in a year of crisis with both above-average investment results and superior service quality ratings.
André Haagmann, Head of Institutional Clients at Union Investment, is delighted with the very good results: "Institutional business is characterised by intense competition - which is why our efforts are focused on quality leadership with high customer satisfaction! The renewed award as "Greenwich Quality Leader" confirms that we are very well positioned for institutional investors."
