CINCINNATI --(BUSINESS WIRE)--

ClearArc Capital announced today it has been recognized with Top Guns status by Informa Investment Solutions' PSN manager database. The ranking status recognizes top performing institutional investment strategies. Two of the firm’s strategies were among the top 10 performers within one or more peer groups reporting to PSN, the longest-running investment manager database in North America.

Mitch Stapley, CFA, Chief Investment Officer for ClearArc Capital states, “We are honored to be recognized in both the Large Core Equity Universe and Core Plus Universe as a top performer. As an income-focused firm, our Dividend Growth Premium Income and Core Plus Fixed income strategies have been attractive to investors in this ongoing, low yield environment. We attribute our results to the soundness of our investment philosophy, our robust investment process, as well as the experience and chemistry of our investment team.”

ClearArc Capital’s PSN Top Guns products for the quarter include:

According to Informa Investment Solutions' PSN manager database ranking system, products in the 1-star category were top ten performers within their respective universes, based on quarterly returns. Products in the 5 and 6-star category must have an R-Squared of 0.80 or greater relative to the style benchmark for the recent five-year period. Moreover, products must have returns greater than the style benchmark for the three latest three-year rolling periods. After that they select only the products which standard deviation for the five-year period is equal or less than the median standard deviation for the peer group. The 5-star is gained off of top ten returns and the 6-star is earned from the top ten information ratios.

"We congratulate ClearArc Capital on their distinction as a PSN Top Gun. This highly anticipated quarterly ranking recognizes elite performers on the leading investment manager database in North America and is widely used by institutional asset managers and investors across our platform,” said Leno Toich, Managing Director of Informa Investment Solutions. “PSN Top Guns ranks products in six proprietary star categories in over 50 universes.”
