Cardinal Capital Management was recognized in the following two categories for performance ending September 30, 2018:
1.) Non-US Equity Bull & Bear Master
2.) Non-US Equity 1-Star Non-US Equity Core Universe

This highly respected ranking spotlights the performance of leading investment managers each quarter.”
Cardinal Capital Management’s President Glenn C. Andrews, CFA said, “We are again delighted that our Non-US Equity portfolio is ranked in the top 10 of over 900 Non-US products within the PSN database. We are particularly pleased to be recognized as a PSN Bull & Bear Master for the three-year period ending September 30, 2018 as it demonstrates our emphasis on positive risk-adjusted returns (see Cardinal’s Bull & Bear Master Performance by clicking here). Specifically, our Non-US Equity Portfolio captured 106% of the positive or ‘up’ quarters and suffered only 42% of ‘down’ quarters over the previous three years. These attributes reflect our value-oriented methodology that results in significantly lower-volatility portfolios that aim to outperform the benchmark over time as illustrated in the Performance Summary (see page five of the Performance Summary by clicking here).”
