MONTREAL, Jan. 23, 2015 /CNW Telbec/ - O'Leary Funds Management LP, a leading destination for income-oriented Canadian investors, is pleased to announce that two of its mutual funds are recipients of 2014 FundGrade® A+ Awards for best risk-adjusted returns and achieving consistently high FundGrade® scores throughout the entire calendar year. The Funds recognized are the O'Leary Canadian Bond Yield Fund (Series A), which also won in 2013, and the O'Leary Global Bond Yield Advantaged Fund (Series A).
"We are very honoured to receive an A+ Award for a second consecutive year", said Connor O'Brien, CEO of O'Leary Funds and President of Stanton Asset Management Inc. the portfolio advisor to the O'Leary family of funds. "This recognition, along with the 2014 Lipper Award the O'Leary Canadian Bond Yield Fund received as best Canadian Fixed Income Fund over three years, demonstrates the value added by our investment approach. Our investment team deserves congratulations for this achievement. We thank our investment advisors and their clients for their ongoing support."
The FundGrade® A+ Rating identifies funds with the best risk-adjusted returns and is awarded annually to funds that have achieved consistently high FundGrade® scores through an entire calendar year. Achieving a FundGrade® A+ Rating denotes inclusion in an exclusive group, because less than 4% of the eligible investment fund products available in Canada have received a FundGrade A+ Rating.
The FundGrade® A+ Rating is a totally objective, transparent, score-based calculation using a grade-point average that ranks funds to determine the annual "best-of-the-best" investment fund ratings. As such, the FundGrade® A+ Rating provides investors, advisors, and fund managers with a single, reliable, easy-to-understand fund-performance rating based on an entire calendar year.
