Tradition Asset Management today announced that it has been awarded a PSN Top Guns distinction by Informa Financial Intelligence’s PSN manager database, North America’s longest running database of investment managers.
Tradition Asset Management was honored with a Top Guns Manager of the Decade rating for its Dividend Value strategy.
“It’s great for the firm to be recognized as a Top Gun equity investment manager. I am proud of our team,” said Benjamin C. Halliburton, Chief Investment Officer.
Through a combination of Informa Financial Intelligence’s 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 Financial Intelligence is part of Informa plc, a leading provider of critical decision-making solutions and custom services to financial institutions.
Top Gun firms are awarded a rating ranging from one to six stars, with the number of stars representing continued performance over time.
Tradition Asset Management’s Dividend Value strategy was named Top Guns Manager of the Decade of the All-Cap Value Universe, meaning the Dividend Value strategy had an r-squared of 0.80 or greater relative to the style benchmark for the latest 10-year period. Moreover, products must have returns greater than the style benchmark for the latest 10-year period and also standard deviation less than the style benchmark for the latest ten-year period. At this point, the top ten performers for the latest 10- year period become the PSN Top Guns Manager of the Decade.
Tradition Asset Management’s Dividend Value strategy was named Top Gun 6-Star rating, meaning our Dividend Value strategy had 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. Products are then selected which have a standard deviation for the five-year period equal or less than the median standard deviation for the peer group. The top ten information ratios for the latest five-year period then become the 6 Star Top Guns.
“Congratulations to Tradition Asset Management, LLC for being recognized as a PSN Top Gun,” said Ryan Nauman, Market Strategist at Informa Financial Intelligence’s Zephyr. “This highly esteemed designation allows us to recognize success, excellence and performance of leading investment managers each quarter.”
