CALGARY, Jan. 22, 2015 /CNW/ - Repeating its strong performance of last year, Mawer has once again received eight rankings of A+ for its funds in the 2014 Fundata FundGrade awards program.
The 2014 award-winning funds are identical to those that received acknowledgement in 2013, reflecting Mawer's consistent focus on pursuing excellent long-term investment management (it received seven awards for 2012). The 2014 A+ winners are:
Mawer Balanced Fund
Mawer Canadian Equity Fund
Mawer Tax Effective Balanced Fund
Mawer New Canada Fund
Mawer U.S. Equity Fund
Mawer Global Equity Fund
Mawer Global Small Cap Fund
Mawer International Equity Fund
What makes the Fundata FundGrade award significant? The Fundata FundGrade A+ Awards are given to Canadian investment funds that achieve consistently high FundGrade scores through an entire calendar year. The FundGrade rating system uses a risk-adjusted approach to rank the performance of a fund: it looks beyond a fund's returns and considers the amount of risk accepted to generate those returns. Fundata Canada Inc. has operated since 1987; its database covers more than 28,000 investment fund products.
