In acknowledging these achievements, Sandra Martin, Managing Director, commented, "We are very pleased to have been able to perform so well in several of our strategies over different investment horizons. Over time an investment strategy that focuses on preservation of capital in the market downturns and keeps up well in the more rationally priced upturns should win out over competing strategies with less emphasis on quality and valuation. We are very honored by this recognition that we have received. We appreciate the support and confidence of both our new and existing clients."

It should be noted that these rankings and past performance are not indicative of future performance.
