Cardinal Capital Management, Inc. has been awarded a Top Guns designation by Informa Investment Solutions’ PSN manager database, North America’s longest running database of investment managers. PSN Top Guns performance rankings are tabulated for thousands of strategies across 58 peer groups subdivided by increasingly rigorous screens reported in ascending classes from 1-6 stars. Cardinal Capital’s Small Cap Core Equity Portfolio garnered 5-Stars and was among the top 10 performers within its peer group reporting to PSN.
“We are honored to once again receive Top Guns recognition for one of our investment strategies” said Cardinal Capital’s President and CIO, Glenn Andrews, CFA. “Our firm has been fortunate to receive multiple Top Guns performance rankings over the years, which we think is attributable to our consistent methodology applied to all of our strategies that has produced portfolios with lower risk and positive alphas.” Cardinal Capital’s Small Cap Core Equity Portfolio is constructed based upon the same value-oriented methodology as its US Large Cap Core and Non-US Equity Portfolios.
Through a combination of Informa Investment Solutions’ proprietary performance screens, PSN Top Guns ranks products in six proprietary categories in over 50 universes. This is a well-respected quarterly ranking and is widely used by institutional asset managers and investors. Informa Investment Solutions is part of Informa Financial Intelligence, a leading provider of critical decision-making solutions and custom services to financial institutions.
Top Guns firms are awarded a rating ranging from one to six stars, with the number of stars representing continued performance over time. Cardinal Capital was named a Top Gun with a star rating of 5 meaning that products must have an R-Squared of 0.80 or greater relative to the style benchmark for the recent five-year period. Moreover, products must have returns greater than the style benchmark for the three latest three-year rolling periods. After that they select only the products which standard deviation for the five-year period is equal or less than the median standard deviation for the peer group. The top ten returns for the latest three-year period then become the TOP GUNS.
“PSN Top Guns, which ranks products in six categories in over 50 universes, is a go-to resource for institutional asset managers and investors in their decision-making process,” said Ryan Nauman, VP, product and market strategist at Informa Financial Intelligence. “Congratulations to Cardinal Capital Management, Inc. on being named a PSN Top Gun. This highly respected ranking spotlights the performance of leading investment managers each quarter.”
