Fund Managers Bring Their "A" Game to the Jays Game

TORONTO, Sept. 9, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - The action wasn't all on the field as the Blue Jays hosted the Boston Red Sox at Toronto's Rogers Centre on September 8. High above the field, some of Canada's leading fund companies brought their "A Game to the Jays Game," as Fundata Canada Inc. honoured 55 fund companies whose funds have achieved the coveted Fundata FundGrade® "A" rating.

"The bottom line for investors and their advisors is fund performance," said Janny Vincent, President of Fundata Canada. "We are pleased to recognize these funds for their achievement meeting the rigorous and objective performance criteria necessary to attain a FundGrade "A" rating."

The FundGrade rating system is a valuable tool to assist investors, advisors, and analysts select quality investment funds in Canada. The FundGrade system was developed with the premise that strong risk-return characteristics are desirable to all investors looking to build a stable, growing portfolio.

To achieve an "A" Grade, a fund must demonstrate strong historical performance relative to the amount of accompanying risk as determined by three different risk-adjusted performance ratios stemming from Modern Portfolio Theory: Sharpe; Information; and Sortino.

Only the funds that consistently outperform their peers across all three ratios earn an A Grade, as the exclusive group consists of only the top 10% in each category.
