Model Capital Management LLC (“MCM”), Boston-based asset management firm, has been awarded a Top-Guns designation by Informa Investment Solutions’ PSN manager database. MCM received this recognition for its Tactical Income strategy (PSN's 3-Star category) and 2xStocks-Bonds strategy (PSN's 2-Star category) for the second quarter of 2018. The Top-Guns designation positions the MCM's strategies among the top 5 performers in their respective peer group.
The award-winning MCM's strategies both follow our forward-looking tactical management methodology. The 2xStocks-Bonds strategy follows a U.S. unconstrained risk-on/risk-off framework, with an objective of maximum growth from up to 2x leveraged exposure to equity growth style, while managing the risk of significant downside. The Tactical Income strategy does so within fixed-income assets only.
Investment managers must claim that they are GIPS compliant, adhering to all GIPS standards to be eligible for PSN Top Guns recognition. 2-Star Category products were top performers within their respective universes, based on returns for the one-year period. 3-Star Category products rank among the ten performers within their respective universes, based on returns for the three-year period.
PSN Top Guns ranks products in six proprietary categories in over 50 universes, through a combination of Informa Investment Solutions’ proprietary performance screens. It is a quarterly ranking that is widely used by institutional asset managers and investors.
