Through a combination of PSN’s proprietary performance screens, the PSN Top Guns List ranks products in six proprietary categories in over 75 universes based on continued performance over time.
In the Mid Value Universe, Riverwater’s Sustainable Value Strategy was named Top Gun five-star rating, meaning our strategy had an r-squared of 0.80 or greater relative to the style benchmark for the recent five-year period. Moreover, the strategy’s returns exceeded 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 returns for the latest three-year period then become the 5 Star Top Guns. Additionally, the Sustainable Value Strategy was recognized for having one of the top ten returns for the quarter and one-year period in its respective strategy.
In the Small-Mid Value Universe, Riverwater’s Sustainable Value Strategy was recognized for having one of the top ten returns for the quarter and one-year period in its respective strategy.
In the US Equity Socially Responsible Universe, Riverwater’s Sustainable Value Strategy was recognized for having one of the top ten returns for the one-year and three-year period in its respective strategy.
