New York, NY—December 2021— Inverness Counsel, LLC has been awarded multiple PSN Top Guns distinctions by Informa Financial Intelligence’s PSN manager database, North America’s longest running database of investment managers.

Inverness Institutional was honored with four Top Gun ratings for its Large Cap Core Equity strategy for the period ending September 30, 2021. The Large Core peer group is comprised of 156 firms and 265 products and the U.S. Core universe includes 281 firms and 684 products.

“Inverness is pleased to have been recognized by Informa Financial Intelligence for the exceptional results we have delivered to our clients,” said Richard H. Chesterton, Chief Investment Officer of Inverness Counsel. “The Bull and Bear Master recognition, which reflects the strength of our process and people throughout market cycles, is especially rewarding given the volatility we have faced over the last few years. This is an opportunistic environment for active management, supporting our constant effort to build positions in best-in-class companies at attractive valuations in line with our goal to perform well in up markets and protect capital in down markets.” 

Through a combination of Informa Financial Intelligence’s proprietary performance screens, *PSN Top Guns (*free registration to view Top Guns) ranks products in six proprietary categories in over fifty 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.

Inverness Counsel’s Large Cap Core Equity strategy was awarded the Top Gun 5-star rating in the Large Core Equity Universe. Winners of this awards 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.

This strategy was also named a Top Gun 6-star rating. This is defined as having 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 information ratios for the latest five-year period then become the 6 Star Top Guns.

The Inverness Large Cap Core Equity Strategy invests in a diversified group of both growth and value companies that are believed will create long-term value for investors. Stock selection is built on a bottom-up process that emphasizes expected earnings and cash flow growth over the next few years relative to current valuations. With a focus on not overpaying for this growth, as well as cash flow stability and balance sheet strength, the strategy is designed to lead to better relative performance over an investment cycle, since attractively valued businesses with high-quality characteristics tend to perform better in difficult markets.

“Congratulations to Inverness Counsel, 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.”
