ATLANTA, Dec. 22, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Completing its 6th year in September 2020, the Blue Current Global Dividend Fund (NASDAQ: BCGDX) ("Fund") was designated a "Lipper Leader" by Lipper for its overall rating in the Global Equity Income Category for Total Return and Consistent Return. The Fund received Lipper's highest rating for Total Return and Consistent Return for the overall and 5-year time periods. BCGDX received the following ratings for its overall performance: Total Return: 5 (129 funds), Consistent Return 5 (129 funds), and Capital Preservation 4 (12,176 funds). For Tax Efficiency, BCGDX received a rating of 5 (128 funds) over the trailing three-year period and a rating of 4 for the overall (128 funds) and five-year periods (107 funds).
Lipper Leaders is a mutual fund rating system that analyzes funds against a set of clearly defined metrics. The top 20% of funds receive a rating of '5' and are named Lipper Leaders. Overall ratings are based on an equal-weighted average of percentile ranks for each measure over the relevant time period.
"We are excited that the fund's performance has been recognized by Lipper" said Dennis Sabo, co-portfolio manager of the Fund. "Dividends have not been in favor in recent years, but we hope with fixed income yields at historical lows and the global economy performing better in the year ahead, investors are enticed to move into an undervalued asset class."
Launched on September 18, 2014, the Fund, which is co-managed by Harry Jones and Dennis Sabo, has $45 million in assets and is available for purchase at most major custodians under the ticker symbol BCGDX.
The Fund utilizes its investment strategy in growing cash flow through what we believe is a niche universe of high quality, dividend-paying companies with sustainable business models and dividend policies. The primary objectives are to pay a stable and increasing dividend each quarter and deliver attractive long term capital appreciation to investors.

Lipper Leader Disclosure: As of 09/30/2020, Lipper ratings for Total Return reflect funds' historical total return performance relative to peers; Lipper ratings for Consistent Return reflect funds' historical risk-adjusted returns, adjusted for volatility, relative to peers; Lipper ratings for Preservation reflect funds' historical loss avoidance relative to other funds within the same asset class. Preservation ratings are relative, rather than absolute, measures and funds named Lipper Leaders for Preservation may still experience losses periodically; those losses may be larger for equity and mixed equity funds than for fixed income funds. The Lipper ratings are subject to change every month and are based on an equal-weighted average of percentile ranks for the Total Return, Consistent Return, Capital Preservation and Tax Efficiency metrics over three-, five-, ten-year and overall periods (if applicable). The highest 20% of funds in each peer group are named Lipper Leader or a score of 5, the next 20% receive a score of 4, the middle 20% are scored 3, the next 20% are scored 2, and the lowest 20% are scored 1.
